The Regional Arthritis Center and Northwest Missouri Area Agency on Aging will be offering a free Living a Healthy Life workshop in Lathrop. Living a Healthy Life is a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) for adults living with a chronic condition, such as heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, arthritis, and other chronic conditions.
CDSMP is an evidence-based health program developed by Stanford University with proven results based on rigorous study and scientific evidence. Some of the program goals include improving your knowledge of living a healthy life with a chronic condition, identifying and learning the latest pain management approaches, learning to manage fatigue and stress more effectively, finding solutions to problems caused by your condition, understanding the role of exercise and nutrition in chronic disease self-management, learning how to form a partnership with your health care team, and more.
Participants will also receive a free “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions” workbook and relaxation CD.
This six-week workshop will be held at the Betty Brazelton Center, 707 Oak Street in Lathrop, on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon. Classes begin January 22 and will conclude February 26. Class size is limited, so pre-registration is required. You may sign up by calling Micky Bates, NWMOAAA Health Coordinator, (816) 368-8816, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact Karen Dreyer with Arthritis Community Services, (816) 271-7057.
