Do you have an ongoing health condition? If you have a chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis or chronic anxiety, join in for a free chronic disease self-management workshop series, beginning on Friday, Jan. 29. The event will run from 1-3:30 p.m. at the American Legion, 8643 Buffalo Ave., Niagara Falls.

This program has proven health benefits for individuals with any type of ongoing health condition, and augments any health care a person may be receiving. The purpose of the workshop is to provide simple steps to help people manage symptoms of their diseases, to promote active and fulfilling lifestyles, and to help people 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 Department of Health and Niagara County Office for the Aging. To register, contact the Niagara County Department of Health at 716-278-1900 or NY Connects through the Office for the Aging at 716-438-3030.
