Your Health. Your Community.

Central Region

We are excited to deliver the benefits of Juniper programs to communities in the Central region — among friends and neighbors, with local class leaders and in familiar settings. Juniper’s evidence-based health promotion classes are creating healthier communities in our region and across Minnesota.

Our classes can help you increase self-confidence, improve your ability to manage health conditions, worry less about balance or falling and experience an overall greater sense of well-being.
