Do you have an ongoing health condition? If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis or chronic anxiety, please join us for a free Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshop series, beginning on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at Town of Niagara (Calvin Richards) Community Center (7000 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls, 14305) from 12:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.
This program has proven health benefits for individuals with any type of ongoing health condition, and augments any health care a person may be receiving. The purpose of the workshop is to provide simple steps that help people manage symptoms of their diseases, to promote active and fulfilling lifestyles and to help people feel better. Program instructors encourage caregivers to attend as well, as the program provides opportunities for caregivers to share and support each other.
