Free Tai Chi for Veterans Program

Because of COVID-19, the entire Tai Chi for Veterans Program has switched gears and transitioned to the Zoom platform.

The entire Tai Chi for Veterans program was recently folded into Telehealth, has been added to the CPRS, and any Veteran should now be able to obtain a “community consult for Tai Chi” and participate in any classes nationwide simply by speaking with their medical provider or by logging onto myhealthEvet.com.

Plus, as of 8/5/20, one of the weekly classes transitions over to a “blended-learning” format: for those students who wish to continue enjoying classes in the company of their fellow Veterans while still maintaining safe and healthy social distance, we’ll be able to accommodate them AS WELL AS students who wish to continue Zooming in.

Please take a moment to check out the attached flyers…feel free to pass them along if you like! And in case you’re still wondering EXACTLY how this whole program works, there is a complete Program Description…you can feel especially free to share this with any medical provider if he/she has any confusion whatsoever re how to generate a “consult.”

You should always feel free to reach out to me personally (all my contact info is in the flyers). I’d be happy to speak with any of you anytime!

Health & peace,
Jessica
