Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention in SF August 11 & 12

Thanks to the USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, DAAS is pleased to work with Self-Help for the Elderly to sponsor the upcoming Tai Chi for Arthritis and Fall Prevention Instructor Training on August 11 & 12, 2018.

Our goal for providing this 2-day training is to increase access to quality evidence-based health promotion programs for seniors (age 60 and up) and adults with disabilities in San Francisco by providing training opportunities to volunteers and/or staff leaders from community based organizations serving these target populations. As workshop space is limited, registration priorities will be given to volunteers and staff from Community Based Organizations who will commit to implement Tai Chi at their sites within 1 year after training completion. Please see attached flyer for more details.
