Become a Volunteer

Our volunteers are individuals interested in supporting and empowering others to better manage their chronic conditions and to live a healthy life. Most importantly, you will help people affected by chronic conditions successfully manage their health by using the skills and tools that you have shared with them.


The role of our peer leader is to facilitate the 6-week, 2.5 hour per week "Maximize Your Health" workshops for groups of 12-18 participants. Peer Leader Training is available for persons affected by chronic conditions including patients, family members, caregivers and educators. Training is FREE!
