Hi! I'm Michelle Comeau and I'm a Healthy Living with Diabetes Master Trainer at the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging.
If you're interested in becoming a HLWD program leader, bringing a HLWD workshop to your community, or just have questions about the program, please contact me.
Thank you for committing your expertise, talents, and time to the Healthy Living with Diabetes program. Because of your extraordinary efforts, we will reach many older people with diabetes in Wisconsin providing them with the tools and resources to better manage their health. We have created tools (see categories on the left) to help you initiate, promote, lead, and evaluate a Healthy Living with Diabetes workshop in your community.
This site is a resource to help you facilitate workshops and connect to the most up-to-date information. Along the left-hand side of the page is categories with different tools and documents to help you have a successful workshop. We update and change forms periodically therefore please use this site as your main resource before each workshop.
Planning Your Workshop – helpful forms to prepare leaders to lead, forms to register and track people, and handouts needed to facilitate a workshop.
Marketing & Outreach – promotional materials, presentations, and articles to connect to your community.
Data Collection and Fidelity – proper surveys used in the workshops
Program and Organization Information – help understand how the program works and who is involved. Also, there are documents about the rules and guidelines when being a part of this program.

REQUIRED PRIVACY TRAINING FOR LEADERS AND PROGRAM COORDINATORS:
The federal Administration on Aging's Administration for Community Living has announced some changes related to protecting the privacy of the information collected on workshop participant questionnaires. To stay in compliance with grant requirements, please note the following:
All Leaders and Program Coordinators must view NCOA's 18-minute pre-taped Privacy and Security webinar. (Click to view) After viewing the webinar Leaders should confirm that they viewed the webinar by completing this short online form. WIHA will then be able to update the database indicating that the Leader has viewed the webinar on protecting the privacy and security of participants. (Please note: When watching the webinar, all references to participants needing to sign the consent form no longer apply.)
If you have any questions about the process please contact Karen Denu; (608) 243-5690.
If you would like additional information or have questions, please contact us.
