Free 'My Healthy VT' Workshops

Want to be healthier and feel better?

There are many steps we can take to improve our health over time. My Healthy VT can help with evidence-based Self-Management workshops. These free online and in-person workshops are facilitated by people who have faced similar health challenges. Self-Management offers a group-learning environment that lends itself to building a community and a safe space for sharing common issues, barriers, and celebrating success.

People who complete the workshops see big improvements, like eating better, feeling less depressed, and having a better relationship with their doctors.

Free workshop options include:

► Diabetes Prevention:  For people at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Attendees learn how to decrease their risk of developing type 2 diabetes through healthy eating, physical activity, managing stress, and creating action plans that work for them.

► Diabetes Management: For people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Attendees get the support they need to eat better, exercise, problem solve, manage stress, handle sick days, and monitor blood sugar to lower their risk of serious health problems related to diabetes.

► Quitting Smoking: For people who currently smoke or use tobacco and are looking to quit. Attendees get the support and motivation they need to quit tobacco with a small group of other people trying to quit too.

► Chronic Pain Management: For people living with chronic pain for more than 3 to 6 months. Attendees learn ways to reduce pain, deal with related issues, like having trouble sleeping and more.

► High Blood Pressure Management: For people aged 40+ who have been diagnosed with hypertension or high blood pressure. Attendees learn the basics of controlling high blood pressure, including making healthier choices and reducing stress levels. 

► Chronic Disease Management: For people living with a chronic disease, such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer, obesity, or heart disease. Attendees learn how to make choices to live healthier with chronic disease and lower their risk of related health problems.
