Healthy Living Course
Mendonoma Health Alliance has brought the power and knowledge of leading health education right to the Mendonoma community through our evidence-based Healthy Living Course. This six-week course was designed by Stanford University’s Self-Management Resource Center. Throughout the course, participants learn skills that build confidence and success for long-term management of chronic conditions. This course is open to people of all ages and is free to attend. Participants are provided with the course book and materials needed in order to be successful. Participants are required to attend all six classes, which are scheduled once per week for 2.5 hours, and will be expected to do group brainstorming and work one-on-one with other participants.
Local graduates of this course have reported that the class helped them feel supported in their journey to a healthier life, that they became more aware of community resources as a result of engaging and that they learned skills that are easily applied to various other challenges in life.
