We are looking for enthusiastic people to lead the Chronic Pain Personal Action Toward Health (PATH) workshop in Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties.

Chronic Pain PATH is a recurring six-week workshop in which trained lay leaders (this is where you come in!) help people with chronic pain or caregivers of a person with chronic pain learn skills to manage their condition and improve their quality of life.


  • Is a role model for healthy behaviors
  • Possesses good listening skills, is non-judgmental, and dependable
  • Has life experience with chronic pain or is a caregiver to someone with chronic pain
  • Has some experience with, and is comfortable speaking in front of groups
  • Can follow a scripted manual while connecting with participants
  • No prior teaching experience or healthcare education is required, but it is a plus


  • All PATH leaders must attend all 4 days of training: 8:30am-4pm on 4/25, 4/26, 5/2, and 5/3 at the MSU Extension Conference Room in Jackson, MI.
  • Snacks, lunch, and all materials are included.
  • TCOA will cover the $60 training fee for individuals; we ask your organization to cover it if you are facilitating the workshop as part of your work.
