Gerlinger Support Group Room
For those who are coping with or caring for someone with chronic disease, support group gatherings are often the one place where others truly understand what you are experiencing.
The Gerlinger Support Group Room at the Community Health Education Center (CHEC) provides a comfortable, relaxed setting for people to gather and share information.
At support group meetings, members can be seen nodding in affirmation and understanding.
Participation in support groups can provide friendship, guidance, helpful care giving tips, new ideas, and information on local support and resources.
Green Education Classrooms
The Green Education Classrooms, with state-of-the-art audiovisual and video conferencing capability, host various community education events and classes.
Nonprofit partner organizations are encouraged to use these spaces when offering health and wellness classes.
