Better Choices, Better Health®

Helping to put knowledge into action, supporting better health

What is Better Choices, Better Health®?

Living with a long-term (chronic) health condition can be hard. Better Choices, Better Health® (BCBH®) is a free group workshop for adults who have experience living with (or supporting someone who has) a chronic health condition. Some examples are diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and arthritis.

Participants will increase their confidence and learn new skills to better manage their health condition in order to enjoy a better quality of life.

Workshops to choose from:

  • BCBH® - Chronic Disease
  • BCBH® - Chronic Pain

Both workshops provide a safe space to connect and learn with others who may share similar experiences.


Workshop Materials

Participants will receive a workshop textbook.
