Do you have an ongoing health problem like arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, or lung disease? Does it stop you from doing the things you enjoy?

Learn what you can do to feel better and take control of your health!

Individuals living with conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and asthma can learn to manage their own health with confidence.

Living Healthy, Living Well, a free evidence-based program from the Self-Management Resource Center, developed by Stanford University, will be held on Thursdays from March 1, 2018 to April 12. In the event of inclement weather, a snow date will be offered on April 19. The series is held from 2:30 to 5:00 pm each day at Mamakating Public LIbrary on 128 Sullivan Street, Wurtsboro, NY. Refreshments will be provided.

Participants are highly encouraged to attend the series in its entirety. Graduates will receive the book, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions,” a science-informed resource for continued self-management of chronic conditions.

Attendees will learn ways to reduce symptoms, like pain and fatigue, get around more easily, and engage in the activities they enjoy, for an improved quality of life. Bonnie Lewis, RN of Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County (CCESC) and Shawn Comfort of Action Toward Independence will present day-to-day techniques for self-management of multiple chronic health conditions and medical recommendations as well as complimentary enhancements to traditional clinical treatments.
