Our goal at Healthy Interactions is simple; improving people's lives around the world -- including yours! In 10 years, our thousands of Conversation Map® facilitators have shared their best tips and tricks, and now we are sharing them with you. Connect with your fellow educators and learn how to improve participation, enhance learning, and get your physicians referring more patients.
Even if you haven’t used Conversation Map® tools before, now is the time to learn about them - our program validation is unprecedented. We combine in-person reimbursable Conversation Map® group patient sessions, led by a licensed Healthcare Professional, with an ongoing hi.goals™ digital coaching platform that leads to long-lasting, sustainable behavioral change.
