Free workshops to emphasize chronic disease self-management

  • Thursday, March 13, 2014

Learn how to manage your chronic disease with “Better Choices, Better Health,” a series of six free workshops beginning March 17 at Wachesaw Conference Center.

The series will be repeated in May, July and September.

Sponsored by Georgetown Hospital System and developed at Stanford University, the program is intended for people with chronic health conditions, such as arthritis, chronic lung disease, depression, diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

The workshops will focus on helping people manage their chronic disease and offer support for making healthy choices. Leaders will provide information on healthy eating and exercise, as well as practical ways to deal with pain and fatigue, and help participants learn how to deal with difficult emotions and how to talk with their physician and family about their health.

Sessions will take place from 1:30-4 p.m. every Monday. Registration is required and can be completed by calling 843-520-8490.
