Adult Education and Health Promotion

The goal of the Adult Education and Health Promotion program is to provide learning opportunities that help our community members deal with life’s ongoing challenges.

By “challenges” we are talking about personal health and relationship issues, and difficulties in understanding, accepting and adapting to the constant changes in society and the way the world operates.

In the past we have offered workshops on the following topics:

  • Being proactive and prepared for end of life;
  • Caring for self as a caregiver;
  • Forgiveness;
  • Prostate and breast cancer;
  • Smart aging; and
  • Understanding and relating to transgender people.

These activities were made possible through collaboration with staff from the Ottawa Cancer Clinic, Compassionate Ottawa, a lawyer, members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and the Council on Aging.

Moving forward we continue to listen to the voices of the Orleans United Church congregation and the wider community in an ongoing effort to understand what the current learning needs are. We welcome your feedback and ideas for future sessions.
