Better Choices, Better Health (BCBH) is a chronic disease self-management program designed to help people learn skills to better manage their own health. This interactive six-week workshop is held in small groups of 8 to 16 participants and meets in-person at a community location once a week for two and a half hour sessions.
Each workshop is led by two volunteer leaders. As a volunteer with Sanford Health, you can use your skills to educate, motivate, and inspire others by facilitating BCBH workshops. Volunteers must participate in a virtual leader training prior to facilitating workshops. No previous teaching experience or health care background required. Personal experience living with a chronic physical or mental health condition is a plus, but not required.
