Training & Consulting Institute

Bringing 30 years of highly effective programs right to your patients!

Learning good self-care is vital to improving chronic disease outcomes.

We know you don’t have time to educate every patent about all the options to create a self-care plan – so we’re here to help. We create the peer-run health education programs your patients need and help you help them get better.

Health People’s Training and Consulting Institute provides proven disease self-care prevention and wellness education.

Why Our Model Works

Our deep roots in the community enable us to strongly engage patients. We are peer education experts! We’ve worked with clinical centers and small practices alike to provide proven peer-delivered self care education for diabetes, asthma and other chronic diseases. We can be on-site at your location, online or on the phone!

And, we can train your own staff in excellent patient engagement and validated self-care education, especially for high need patients!
