CommunityHealth

Health and Wellness Classes and Support

At CommunityHealth, we have adopted a holistic approach to health care – understanding the need to go “beyond the exam room” in order to provide the most comprehensive care possible to our patients. We offer culturally and linguistically competent classes and resources (available in English, Spanish, and Polish) that help people live healthier lives. This is especially important for patients living with chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. Learning about healthy eating and exercise can help control chronic diseases – and that can lead to a better quality of life.

Health and wellness programs are offered at both of our clinics. All classes are free. Most classes are open to members of the community, in addition to current patients, unless noted otherwise. For more information about any of the programs below or to register for a class, contact our Health Education Coordinator at 773.969.5919.

CommunityHealth patients in need of additional emotional or personal support may also benefit from our social services.
