Workshop Leaders are dedicated community volunteers who empower people to better manage their chronic conditions and to live a healthy life. Leaders typically have first-hand experience with a chronic condition themselves. They apply and model self-management skills in their own lives.
Leaders may be lay people or health care professionals. Regardless, they act as peers when leading the workshop, not as health experts. Two Volunteer Peer Leaders always work together to deliver the workshops.
