Women’s Health Advocacy Program (WHAP) Classes

Women’s Health and Advocacy education seminars and curriculum-based classes are provided free of charge to the community. The curriculum-based classes include ten 90-minute sessions, intended to serve as a short-term behavior program for a group of women about 10-15 in size. The topics are intended to help build resilience, including information about:

  • Goal setting
  • Decision making
  • Communication
  • Stress and coping

The classes also focus on providing women with information about specific aspects of their health, and the topics generally covered are:

  • Reproductive health
  • Addictions
  • Healthy relationships
  • Nutrition
  • Physical activity

The materials for the classes include a corresponding curriculum addressing the above topics, and copies of our three publications:

Which Weigh?

How’s My Health?

What Are the Facts?
