The Health and Wellness Outreach (HWO) program was developed in 2014 to improve the health and quality of life of seniors and other at-risk populations in the St. Louis area. Through interactive workshops, the HWO team educates people so they may be able to avoid or minimize (the impact of) a chronic disease and reduce reliance on medication. For those already battling a chronic health condition, the Health and Wellness Outreach program teaches simple, actionable ways to manage their disease.

When COVID-19 restrictions prevented the team from providing in-person classes at local libraries and senior centers, they pivoted to offer on-line workshops via zoom and the feedback was superb.  The Health and Wellness Outreach programs continues to help people learn   

We like to introduce our new Health and Wellness Outreach staff members.
