Evidenced Based Workshops

What are evidence based programs?

Evidence-based programs were developed and supported through research to promote self management and understanding to those with chronic health conditions (such as diabetes and chronic pain), fall prevention, and encourage improving the overall state of well being through education, fitness instruction, and resources.

What is Juniper?

Juniper strives for a healthier Minnesota.  As stated on their website, "Juniper is helping communities across Minnesota create a culture of health, where prevention and wellness are the norm. Our programs give you the tools you need to take control of your own health and manage in a way that works best for you and your life. Juniper programs provide education, fitness instruction, and self-care strategies for participants; they do not replace clinical care provided by doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. Our evidence-based programs help people across the state experience improved wellness and quality of life."  For more information, visit their website at www.yourjuniper.org
