Healthy U is now available online!

To help address the growing needs of people all across Wyoming, we are now offering Healthy U workshops online. You can attend a Healthy U workshop from the comfort of your own home using a computer, tablet, or smart phone. Healthy U is free to attend and open to anyone over the age of 18.

There are two ways you can participate in Healthy U online.

  1. Attend a Healthy U workshop live via webinar. These webinars meet once a week for 2.5 hours over the course of 6 weeks. Each webinar can accommodate between 6 and 12 people. 
  2. Attend a Healthy U workshop via interactive website. These workshops last 6 weeks but, each week, you can work at your own pace. You will interact with other people from all across the country using discussion boards.

Website-Based Healthy U

What are these workshops like?

A website-based Healthy U workshop takes place over six weeks. You will have a set number of activities to do each week but when you do them is up to you. You will interact with a group of participants from all over the country using easy-to-use discussion boards. Because these workshops are offered with our partner organization, they are called Better Choices Better Health instead of Healthy U. 

How do I join?

You can join these workshops from your computer, tablet, or smart phone--whatever you preferred device is. They do not require a working camera or a microphone. Taking a Healthy U workshop this way is like visiting any other website. It does not require technical expertise. However, if you are having issues, there are people ready to help you.

When is the next workshop?

These workshops start frequently (every 1-2 weeks on average), so you can join and get started whenever you like.  

How do I sign up?
