Health Partners Plans Now Offers Health and Wellness Workshops Online
Philadelphia, PA – Health Partners Plans (HPP), an innovative managed care organization, has taken its community education workshops from the classroom to cyberspace with the recent launch of Online Learning Videos. Now community members don’t have to wait for a course to come to a nearby school, church or senior center; they can simply access any workshop online when it is convenient for them.
The Health and Wellness workshops will still be offered throughout Greater Southeastern Pennsylvania and at HPP’s new Community Wellness Center in West Philadelphia, located at 6232 Market Street, for those who enjoy the dynamic interaction between instructors and participants.
“The idea behind offering the classes online is to make them more accessible, so people can take them in the convenience of their own homes,” said Todd Harrison, HPP senior community education program specialist. “We also view this as a way to increase engagement and retention of current members and as a way to connect with prospective members.”
Current Online Learning Videos are:
- Asthma Education
- When to Use the Emergency Room
- Breakfast Basics
- Child Online Safety
- Budgeting and Finance
“Part of our mission is to continually improve the health outcomes of our members, and these courses on a variety of health and wellness topics are one way that HPP can help members achieve their health goals,” said Jorge Parra, manager, health and wellness programs.
