Our patient and caregiver programs help people learn how to achieve the following:

  • Create a life-long fitness/exercise program with which they can live

  • Devise a diet that keeps them healthy

  • Create and sustain a productive relationship with a healthcare provider

  • Understand treatment options

  • Determine which drugs are best for a particular individual and how to advocate for those drugs

  • Learn ways to improve mental attitude


Our healthcare provider programs, like our patient and caregiver programs, are in-person events.
Healthcare providers learn:
