Walk With Ease: Moving Forward Despite COVID-19 – February 21, 2021
February 17, 2021
Community-based programs supporting arthritis management and prevention have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to COVID-19, these programs were frequently offered in locations like community centers, YMCAs, senior centers, and parks — places that have been closed or offered limited capacity since spring of 2020. In order to continue to reach participants with these vital programs, community-based organizations have had to pivot their program delivery models to include more virtual and self-directed programs like the self-directed Walk With Ease program.
This webinar will highlight lessons learned from two community-based organizations – the North Carolina Center for Health and Wellness and the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan – as they continue to move forward offering Walk With Ease during these challenging times. We will also share tools and resources available through the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance to support individuals who are interested in registering for Walk With Ease and learning more about our COVID-19 resources.
