Creating a Healthier Minnesota

Juniper is helping communities across Minnesota create a culture of health, where prevention and wellness are the norms. Our evidence-based programs give you the tools you need to take control of your health and manage it in a way that works best for you and your life.

What are evidence-based programs?

Juniper programs are based on rigorous research and are proven to produce results. You can be confident that the classes will be a good investment of your time. Our trained and certified leaders are experts at presenting class content and connecting class participants with each other.

But don't worry. We'll meet you where you are. Our classes are perfect for people of all physical abilities.

Using a network approach

Juniper works through a network of community organizations, local healthcare organizations, class leaders and funding partners.

The best health outcomes come from an integration of clinical care and social care, and Juniper is at the forefront of this growing movement. We are committed to continuing to build partnerships that will allow us to provide services targeted to people who will benefit from them most.

Powerful partnerships

Our provider organizations ground Juniper in local communities. Powerful and well-known within their communities, these organizations are essential to achieving Juniper’s goal of creating a culture of health and wellness in our communities.
