Virtual Workshops/Classes

Does your Health Center offer exercise classes, cooking lessons, or another type of class for patients? Film a class with the instructor for social media to encourage healthy habits at home and future participation in in-person classes. You can prerecord classes and post them online or try and do a live stream.
