An ever-increasing number of people are living longer with chronic pain, diabetes, or multiple chronic conditions. Research has proven that people with chronic health conditions can learn skills to effectively manage their illness and improve health outcomes. In addition, many adults can benefit from learning low-impact exercise to improve balance and strategies to increase confidence and reduce their fear of falling.

The Juniper Network is looking for volunteers and professionals to be class leaders to educate, motivate and inspire. Leaders co-facilitate a 6 week workshop on Living Well with Chronic Conditions, Chronic Pain, or Diabetes communities across the 7-county Arrowhead Region. Falls prevention workshops such as A Matter of Balance, Tai Ji Quan, and SAIL (Staying Active and Independent for Life) range in duration from 8-12 weeks, up to ongoing exercise classes. Local community organizations sponsor and coordinate Juniper workshops. Trained Juniper leaders facilitate small groups of people with chronic health conditions or chronic pain to help them manage their symptoms, build confidence, and maintain an active lifestyle. Registration is now open for spring leader trainings.

Once Trained, leaders can deliver workshops a location of their choice (i.e. faith community, wellness center, clinic, hospital, senior housing, or other) Workshops are offered throughout Minnesota.
