"Participating in the Living Well program helped change my life. I like to think of the Living Well program as a giant toolbox full of tools you can pull out and utilize whenever you need them…It helped me to reengage in my life. It’s been over 7 years since I have participated in this program and I still, every day, utilize those tools in the toolbox I got from the Living Well program.
