You will have fun, meet new friends and help others to positively self manage their chronic conditions and chronic pain.

As a leader, you will have the satisfying task of integrating the contents of the program and learning group facilitation skills that can be transferred to other areas of your life. Most importantly, you will watch people affected by chronic conditions successfully manage their health conditions by using the skills and tools that you have shared with them.
