Living Well: Take Charge of Your Health is a FREE six week workshop to help participants with chronic health conditions to better manage their health. Class will meet on Wednesdays May 1 – June 5, 12:30 PM – 3:00 PM.

The workshop is facilitated by two leaders and will cover many topics of discussion. It will help to better manage living with a chronic disease. A few of the topics discussed are healthy eating and weight management, how to begin an exercise program, how to better manage medications and side effects, getting a good night’s sleep, and better balance. In addition, participants will learn techniques on how to deal with pain, frustration, and fatigue.

Classes are interactive and highly participative. Mutual support and success builds confidence in the ability to manage one’s health and maintain an active life.

The Living Well workshop is an evidence based program, meaning it is proven to show results. It was development by Stanford University School of Medicine.
