Health Education Events

MANY OF OUR SERVICES INVOLVE TEACHING COMMUNITY MEMBERS.

If we can help you stay healthy, that benefits everybody – you, your family and our community. HealthBridge events are just one way we do this. We also sponsor a variety of support groups, classes and workshops for all ages.
