Healthy Living for Maine ("HL4ME" or "We" or "Us") connects individuals to programs that provide education, appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance, and self-care strategies to help people experience improved wellness and quality of life. The programs are developed and verified by researchers to prevent falls, prevent and manage diabetes, and promote management of health conditions such as chronic pain, COPD, high blood pressure, and arthritis.
