About the “Living a Healthy Life” workshop
The “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” workshop helps people with chronic health conditions to better manage their symptoms and their daily life. It is FREE to participants, and participants receive the Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions reference book for free. All participants must pre-register for a workshop. We suggest participants attend all six sessions if possible. The more sessions attended, the more benefit!
Workshop groups meet once a week for 2½ hours, over six weeks. There are eight to sixteen participants in each workshop. The workshop teaches skills for living a healthy life including: healthy eating; exercise; pain and fatigue management; stress management; communicating with your healthcare professional; managing medications; and planning and problem solving. Participants take an active role in the workshop. They set individual goals each week and work to accomplish their goals throughout the following week. Participants are asked to share their goals and progress with the group.
