The HEAL Program® provides 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 Wednesday.
