The HEAL program provides free health education classes. Certified Optima Health instructors provide hands-on learning about healthcare topics like:

  • Learning to compare nutrition facts on labels
  • How to read and understand a prescription bottle and over-the-counter medicine
  • When to use urgent care or the emergency room
  • How to fill out medical and medical history forms
  • How to talk to your doctor
  • And more!

There are eight classes in a series. Attendance to all eight classes is not required, but strongly encouraged. Classes meet every Tuesday.

Registration is preferred as class size is limited.  Call 1-866-706-6708 (toll-free) or email to sign up.
