'Living Well with Chronic Conditions' workshops set

Published On: Aug 26 2013 07:34:23 PM CDT

Do you or someone you know, live with a health condition that affects daily life? Workshops to achieve a healthier way of living for people living with ongoing health conditions begin as early September 17. Workshops are now being held in Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties.

A chronic health problem is one that you must learn to live with for many years, such as diabetes, emphysema, arthritis, migraine headaches, and heart disease. A healthy way to live with a chronic condition is to work at overcoming the symptoms.

The Living Well with Chronic Conditions program, sponsored by Living Well Central Oregon, is designed to complement and enhance medical treatment and disease management. Through the series of classes, participants will learn what they can do to feel better and manage their condition more effectively.

One series of classes and the book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, costs each participant a total of $10.
