The Kansas Arthritis Program works with a variety of organizational partners across the state to provide Tools for Better Health leader trainings on a regular basis around the state.  Individuals interested in being trained as leaders must complete four days of training conducted by Tools for Better Health master trainers.  The training is conducted for two days from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm one week with the next two days of training occurring the following week.  This break in the training allows participants to practice the action planning skills workshop participants are expected to participate in over the six week workshop.
