Better Choices, Better Health: Learn to Live Well with a Chronic Disease Workshop Leaders Awarded Champion Award by DHHS

4/4/2012

Did you know that nearly one out of every two adults have at least one chronic disease? These chronic diseases may include arthritis, chronic pain, asthma, obesity, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and any other chronic condition that you live with on a daily/weekly basis, which may significantly limit your every-day activities.

Learn how to manage your symptoms/disease with the Better Choices, Better Health workshop presented by LRGHealthcare. The first workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 11 from 9:00-11:30 a.m. at the Northfield Pines Community Center, continuing for six consecutive weeks (same time, same place).

Those attending the workshops will apply skills for living a full, healthy life with a chronic condition, learn to set weekly goals and develop a practical step-by-step plan for improving health and quality of life.

Workshop leaders will guide participants through this proven program developed by the Stanford University School of Medicine. These sessions are ideal for anyone living with a chronic health condition or a caregiver of someone with a chronic health condition.

LRGHealthcare Community Educators Carolyn Muller and Melissa Rizzo have successfully guided many community members through the program. Carolyn and Melissa’s programs have been so well received they were recently presented with a Champion Award by the Department of Health and Human Services. The award recognizes their outstanding leadership and abilities to engage individuals in promoting the Better Choices, Better Health Chronic Disease Self-Management Program in New Hampshire.
