Chronic Disease Self Management Classes
By DebraMcDonagh / September 17, 2019

My Life, My Health. 

FREE 6 Week Workshop on chronic disease self-management.

The class empowers participants to manage their own health by making lifestyle changes and by obtaining tools that help you devise a personalized approach to managing chronic illness symptoms on a daily basis. 

This class helps those living with a physical or mental health condition such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma or shortness of breath, high blood pressure, cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, fatigue, or other ongoing health conditions.



Topics include:
  • Exercise and nutrition
  • Managing pain, fatigue, difficult emotions, and depression
  • Medications and making treatment decisions
  • Talking with your family, friends, health care providers… and more!
You will learn skills to help you have increased energy and physical activity; decreased pain, fatigue, depression and health distress, and fewer social limitations.
