Walk With Ease Training and Support

Walk with Ease is an evidence-based, physical activity program developed by the Arthritis Foundation. It was originally designed to support older adults with arthritis, but is now endorsed by the CDC as a lifestyle management program. 

 At any time, agencies and organizations can refer participants into the statewide delivery of the self-directed program but there are also opportunities for organizations to receive free training and support to deliver group or hybrid (enhanced) versions of Walk with Ease in communities at a local level. Groups interested in the free training and support receive access to the online Walk with Ease training course offered by the Arthritis Foundation as well as access to a customized online portal to facilitate program delivery and participant engagement. Additional information is provided below.
