Organization: Living Healthy Champlain
Peer Leader Training is four 8-hour days. This training will consist of two days the first week (November 20 & 21, 2017) and two the following week (November 27 & 28, 2017). Training will be held in English.

Workshop Leaders are dedicated community volunteers who empower participants to better manage their chronic conditions and to live a healthy life. Leaders typically have first-hand experience with a chronic condition themselves. They apply and model self-management skills in their own lives. Leaders may be lay people or health care professionals. Regardless, they act as peers when leading the workshop, not as health experts. Two Peer Leaders always work together to deliver the workshops.
