*Evidence-based class through the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging
All of the classes are informative not only because of the facilitation by the leaders, but also because each person who comes to the class has their own wisdom and experiences that they bring to the table. In this way, the participants and co-leaders all learn from each other. Each class is a rich experience that can be remembered long after the class is over, and each class has information that can be used all throughout your life.
