ĎLiving Well With A Chronic Conditioní Educational Series Coming to Memphis

The Clark County Health Department, Scotland County Health Department and Northeast Missouri Arthritis Center will be sponsoring a six-week workshop entitled ďLiving Well With a Chronic ConditionĒ. The classes are designed to help people manage the challenges of arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic pain, osteoporosis, diabetes, asthma, heart disease and many other chronic conditions.

The course was developed by Stanford University and has been held around the world by numerous trained leaders in a variety of settings with great success. In addition to the beneficial educational material received, participants also learn from one another and support one another in setting and achieving appropriate health related goals.

Having a chronic condition does not mean that you have to stop doing the things you love to do! This class discusses strategies for getting and maintaining control of many symptoms that make living more difficult. Some of the topics are how to fight fatigue, how to communicate better about health issues, how to make daily tasks easier, how to manage pain and other symptoms and how to set goals for a positive life.

This class will be offered free of charge to all residents of Clark and Scotland Counties, and will meet on Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m. Ė 1:00 p.m. at the Scotland County Health Department and from 2:00 p.m. Ė 4:00 p.m. at the Clark County Health Department. The class will begin on October 3rd and will be completed on November 7th. Although free, seats for the class are limited at both sites, so interested participants should call their county health department no later than September 22, 2006 to register.

Funding for this project was provided in part by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and by Missouri Foundation For Health. The Missouri Foundation For Health is a philanthropic organization whose mission is to improve the health of people in the communities it serves.
