Workshop teaches practical skills for managing chronic disease
Do you, a friend, or family member suffer from an ongoing health condition that causes you to feel scared, frustrated, lonely, or hopeless? Samaritan Coastal Clinic in Lincoln City is hosting a free six-week workshop called Living Well with Chronic Conditions, which will provide practical skills for living a happier and healthier life.
The Living Well self-management workshop will be presented from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Tuesdays, Nov. 3 through Dec. 15 (except Nov. 24) at the clinic, 825 NW Hwy 101.
Developed by Stanford University School of Medicine, the program teaches how to work with health care providers, manage medications, fitness and relaxation techniques, communication skills, nutrition tips, personal goal-setting, effective problem-solving, improved sleep techniques, fall prevention, and decision-making skills.
Participants are welcome to bring a family member, caregiver or friend to each session. Although there is no charge, pre-registration is requested. To register, call Mitchell Heath at 541-768-6070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
