This talk will describe an innovative community program that ran for one year in a subsidised seniors' housing building. Though the program was designed to assess participants' health and their risks of chronic disease, un-anticipated effects occurred. Qualitative work explored participants' experiences and perceptions of the program and the analysis revealed some interesting 'spin-off' effects of the CHAP-EMS Program.
