Kaweah Delta Health Care District is offering a free workshop to help people learn how to better manage their health. The workshop is designed for those with ongoing health problems such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, asthma and other chronic conditions.
Topics include dealing with difficult emotions, managing symptoms, goal setting, problem solving, nutrition, understanding medications, making informed treatment decisions, and increasing strength and stamina through better fitness.
The workshop was developed by Dr. Kate Lorig at Stanford University. Participants demonstrate significant improvements in the areas covered. They also report fewer hospitalizations and outpatient visits.
The Empowerment for Better Living workshop will be held once a week for six weeks at the newly opened Chronic Disease Management Center, 325 Willis St. in Visalia. The center will host the workshop four times this year:
• February 10 – March 16 (Wednesdays)
