Do you have an ongoing health condition? If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain or arthritis, join a free chronic disease self-management workshop series, starting Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, at the Wheatfield Towers, 6849 Plaza Drive, Niagara Falls. Sessions run from 1-3:30 p.m. for six consecutive Fridays.

This is a program with proven health benefits for individuals with any type of ongoing health condition and complements the health care one may already be receiving. The purpose of the workshop is to provide simple steps to help people better manage health symptoms, to promote an active and fulfilling lifestyle, and to feel better. Program instructors encourage caregivers to attend, as well, as the program provides opportunities for caregivers to share and support each other.

The workshop is sponsored by the Niagara County Office for the Aging and the Niagara County Department of Health. To register, contact NY Connects through the Office for the Aging at 716-438-3030 or the Niagara County Department of Health at 716-278-1900.

If your group or organization is interested in scheduling a workshop, call the nursing division at 716-278-1900.
