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, please join us for a free chronic disease self-management program (CDSMP) workshop series, beginning Friday, April 14, from 9-11:30 a.m. at The Dale Association, 33 Ontario St., Lockport. The workshop runs for six weeks on Fridays.

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 that help people manage symptoms of their diseases, promote active and fulfilling lifestyles, and 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, or if you have additional questions about the CDSMP workshops, please contact Stacy Knott, MS. Ed., nursing operations manager at the Niagara County Department of Health, at 716-278-1900.
