BETTER Women is a research program that goes beyond cancer to help women aged 40-68 reduce their risk of chronic disease by creating and achieving health goals. Activities such as getting screened, moving more, healthy eating, quitting smoking and, reducing alcohol intake can reduce a person’s risk of getting cancer and other chronic diseases. Volunteer peer health coaches will provide regular support to women so they can reach and maintain their health goals.

Key Responsibilities

To become a volunteer peer health coach, you will complete a virtual 24-hour online training program that will be delivered over the course of 5 weeks. 

As a volunteerpeer health coach, you will join the BETTER Women program to virtually (you can reside anywhere in Ontario) support women aged 40-68 achieve personal health goals that can help reduce their risk of chronic disease (being more active, healthy eating, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol, and getting screened).  

You will be matched with a patient and connect with them by phone, text, email, or video conference for short 10-15 minutes sessions per week to coach them to reach their goals. Based on your availability, you may be matched with 1-5 patients at any given time (6-month timeframe per match).

The program is currently being offered by three sites: Summerville Family Health Team, Barrie and Community Family Health Team: Family Medicine Teaching Unit and Women’s College Hospital Family Practice Health Centre.

Your Impact

Peer health coaches can relate to the group of women being supported through BETTER Women because of their own lived experiences and backgrounds.

Would you like to inspire and be inspired by youth participating in a program designed to get them excited about science, technology, engineering, and math?

This prepares them for tournaments at which teams demonstrate their robots and present their solutions or portfolios to panels of judges.

There is a small amount of preparation involved and no technical background or experience with our programs is required to volunteer at our events.
