Hello – Thank you for committing to this program and your community! We are so appreciative and proud of our Leaders; we couldn’t do it without you!

But if you have any questions, please contact your local coordinator or staff at Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging (WIHA) – contact information below.

Week 1: Be sure everyone signs in using the Sign-In Sheet provided. Workshop Overview/Homework handout - have them pick it up when they sign-in Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions book

o They may use the book in class but not take it home, unless they pay a $$ deposit. They can choose to keep the book at the end of the workshop or return it to you for their $$ deposit back (in good condition, of course). Please track who gave a deposit.

Make checks payable to: Name tag or tents Health and Demographic Surveys:

o This is the large packet from WIHA with all the instructions and items needed inside. o It is completely voluntary. Please encourage everyone to fill them out – it’s what helps keep

the programs free/low-cost in the community.o Put completed surveys into the large envelope provided and return with the other materials

at the end of the workshop. Do not mail! -return to your coordinator first!o Talking points to say to people about the survey:

This survey asks questions about you and your health. We would appreciate it if you would complete the survey, but it is up to you. Feel free to skip any questions you don’t want to answer.

We ask you these questions for a few reasons: Understand who comes to the workshops. Help health providers work more effectively with their patients. Understand if we make a difference in your health or how you take care of yourself. And to ask health plans, employers and foundations to help support the program – keeping them low-cost to the community.

Introduce/start a Parking Lot of personal questions for an Optional Seventh Session with a health professional: Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Nurse, or Registered Dietician.

Week 2 Activity 2&3: Guidelines for a Healthy Eating Plan/Menu Planning – this activity has A LOT of

information. Practice ahead of time. Be sure you know your transitions between sections (lecture, brainstorms, book work, call-outs). Encourage participants to take notes.

Activity 3: Menu Planning – print one Menu Planning #1 Handout for each person If the group has a hard time with these activities – let them know that it’s okay. Learning about a

new skill is the first step. Practice and patience comes before mastery.

Week 3 Inform participants that there are some resource flyers on the back table to take:

o A free Medical Identification Jewelry Order Form. This can be connected to the end of Activity 2: Preventing Low Blood Sugar (page 12).

o Free Diabetes Resources flyer offering self-care booklet, wallet size personal record card, blood sugar log booklet, pedometers, etc.

Week 4 Activity 3&4: Putting it All Together and Menu Planning – Menu Planning #2 Handout. Be sure to

practice this activity beforehand, know your transitions, keep it fun!Also, please have a few extra nutrition labels for participants who may forget theirs.

Week 5: F.Y.I. in Activity 4: Relaxation Body Scan – you’ll be leading the participants in a body scan exercise.

You can simply read the script provided in your Leader Manual or you can bring in a CD player to play the audio version. Please make arrangements with your coordinator.

Provider Feedback Forms - Connect this to your Closing Activity (page 33). They can fill it out as homework or at break time next week (session six).

o It is completely voluntary. Please encourage everyone to fill it out.o Talking points to say about this form:

This form is a fill-in-the-blank style letter. It’s voluntary but we hope you’ll take the opportunity to tell your provider about your health journey over the last six weeks in this workshop. We’ll send it on to your provider so they’ll know you’re talking charge of your health! It helps spread the word about this great resource. It also helps fill our workshops which then keeps them low-cost.

o Put completed forms back in the folder and send back with the other materials at the end of the workshop.

Week 6: Collect any Provider Feedback Forms from last week (or give to anyone who missed last week) Exit Evaluations – optional. Hand out at the beginning of session to be completed by the end

Hand out with the Meta-Star/WIHA’s Post-Test (in large envelope sent by WIHA): o This helps us understand what the participant learned and liked in the workshop. It gives

people a chance to give us feedback about the program. We ask you these questions for a few reasons: How can we do a better job providing

the workshops. Understand if we made a difference in your health or how you take care of yourself. We actively seek your comments and feedback to better serve the communities’ health through these programs!

o On the evaluation we also ask if they’re interested in becoming a leader. We hope that if the person was positively impacted through the program they may consider joining our team. If someone is interested your coordinator can help them learn more!

o Put completed forms back in the folder and send back with the other materials at the end of the workshop.

Completion Certificates – sign and handout at the end, during Activity 6, page 28 or at Closing. If applicable; Remind participants about the Optional Seventh Session with a health professional:

Diabetes Educator, Nurse, or Dietician. Send Parking Lot to the professional/your coordinator.

YOU DID IT! Congratulations! Connect with your coordinator to return all the workshop items
