Covid-19

Many previously scheduled classes have been postponed due to COVID19 social distancing safety measures.  Our partners are working on alternatives during this time, such as online options or future programs. If you are interested in a program, please still contact healthyagingncinfo@gmail.com and we will make sure to connect you to the program provider for more information about upcoming workshops in your area.

Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention and the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Toolkit can be offered virtually in NC during this time. Please go to Program Forms for online program forms and to Leader Resources for support material to deliver these online programs safely, and with fidelity.
