Community Program

Helping families learn how to address health concerns before they start

To support families as they learn healthy living in their communities, we partnered with Alberta Blue Cross® to launch the CHANGE Health Community Program (CHCP). Health professionals, such as dietitians, exercise specialists and mental health clinicians, help guide the sessions and support the families and community members through CHANGE Health's four pillars: nutrition, physical activity, mental health and social connection.

What does the CHCP offer?

Families participate in weekly online get-togethers where they connect socially through activities, discuss relevant health topics, connect with health professionals and find out about local community activities. There is also a private online community group for people to connect, share stories, engage in weekly challenges and win prizes.

While CHCP had shifted to online programming due to COVID-19, it plans to return to in-person programming as soon as it is safe to do so. The CHCP team and health professionals work to personalize this experience and focus on the areas and goals that are meaningful and achievable.

How do I sign up?

We welcome all families in Alberta to join us to stay connected, meet new families and learn how to incorporate healthy activities into busy family life. CHCP is offered at no cost to families.

Families from across Alberta can get in touch with CHCP below and we will send you a registration form. We will be in touch with you once a program starts in your community.
