Better Choices, Better Health: Learn to Live Well with a Chronic Disease

9/12/2012

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 with the Better Choices, Better Health workshop presented by LRGHealthcare. Sessions are available at Moultonborough Public Library each Tuesday, beginning September 18 through October 23 from 12:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m., at Franklin VNA each Wednesday September 19 through October 24 from 3:00-5:00 p.m., and at Lakes Region General Hospital each Wednesday beginning September 26 through October 31 from 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. A $25 donation is appreciated, but not required

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.
