Staying Healthy Together Workshops
Our half-day health and wellness workshops are held every spring and fall at various locations in Los Angeles County. Workshops are available to members and eligible dependents enrolled in a LACERA-administered health plan, and are an informative, fun way to connect with your fellow retirees.
Every workshop focuses on a particular topic, designed to help you keep a healthy body, mind, and soul. Previous presentations have included healthy eating, physical fitness, heart health, preventing and treating diabetes, improving your memory, managing stress, and more.
Workshops are sponsored by our health plan carriers/partners, allowing us to provide:
- Informative workshop presentation topics
