The program also provides training for caregivers and medical professionals.

The program is a series of six weekly workshops that run for 2 to 2.5 hours. The workshops are informal and include a break and healthy snacks. Participants also receive the 380-page reference book Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions. These workshops are provided free of charge.
