During the COVID-19 pandemic, Calgary Foothills PCN moved to offer our free workshops online to support your health needs.

With health restrictions now lifted, the PCN is preparing to offer in-person workshops again as well as virtual. Each workshop will rotate between the two formats to accommodate various learning preferences and patient locations.

Upcoming in-person workshops

This fall, several in-person workshops are being re-introduced. See dates and times below:

  • Happiness Basics is a four-week virtual workshop teaching adults skills to boost overall happiness. Participants gain 11 practical skills to create happiness daily. The first in-person workshop will run from September 15 to October 6 (Thursdays, 5 – 7 p.m.).
  • Craving Change is a four-week workshop for adults who struggle with problematic eating, including eating for comfort or eating in response to emotions. The first in-person workshop will run from October 12 to November 2 (Wednesdays, 5 – 7 p.m.).
  • COMPASS for the Caregiver is a four-week workshop teaching caregivers to care for themselves. The first in-person workshop will run from October 12 to November 2 (Wednesdays, 5 – 7 p.m.).
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a two-hour session that provides adults tips and tools to help manage IBS. The first in-person session will run on Thursday, October 20 from 5 – 7 p.m.

In-person workshops will take place in the evening at the PCN’s admin office or at Crowfoot Primary Care Centre.
