    Get the most out of your time with your doctor!
    Peer facilitators lead this 1.5 hour interactive workshop to empower patients to be active participants in their health care. An active patient asks questions, voices concerns and has opinions about their care which they share with their doctor(s) and other healthcare professionals. Using the PACE framework, we explore common challenges with doctor-patient interactions and learn techniques on how to improve them.
  • Communication and Group Facilitation
    (8 sessions) – starting Wednesday, July 24, 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM, In-person
    Our Communication and Group Facilitation Workshop provides the basic skills necessary for group facilitation allowing interested individuals to host safe, respectful spaces for growth and mutual learning.  Participants will learn how to support others in a group setting through constructive dialogue, while developing skills in problem-solving, conflict management, and planning and decision making.

All groups and courses are free to attend. You are not required to have a referral, diagnosis, or be a member to participate; all are welcome!
