Health Promotion Classes & Benefits
Our Agency has certified staff members who teach a variety of Evidence-Based Programs. These programs offer proven ways to promote health and prevent disease among older adults.
These Evidence-Based Programs are based on research and provide documented health benefits. Older adults who participate in EBPs can lower their risk of chronic diseases and falls, or improve long-term effects of chronic diseases or falls.
