Our Stroke Survivor Mission
WellPeer delivers innovative and evidence-based, technology-enabled, peer-support grounded wellness and fitness programs to prevent stroke survivor readmissions and reduce costs of disability and care over their post-stroke lifetime. The WellPeer Stroke Survivor Fitness program, is proven to enable individuals with disabilities to succeed where they otherwise might not succeed in mainstream wellness and fitness programs.
Nancy Selden is a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor with more than 12 years of wide-ranging practical experience. She specializes in designing long-term fitness programs for populations that standard fitness programs often do not serve well.
