Live healthy, manage chronic disease

Live healthy, manage chronic disease
Wellness programs like the Chronic Disease Self Management Program, the Healthy Living Program, have the greatest impact on reducing healthcare costs and improving an individual's health because a primary focus is on prevention of multiple chronic diseases and reducing detrimental risk factors. 
The program is designed by Stanford University to help people learn to self-manage their chronic disease more effectively. Participants attending this free workshop meet for 2.5 hours each week for six weeks.
Those with a chronic condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, depression, cancer or obesity are invited. In Sierra Vista, session 1 takes place Oct. 1 and the program runs through Nov. 5, 9 – 11:30 a.m., at St. Andrews Church, 800 Taylor Dr. Bisbee sessions, which include an introductory meeting and held in conjunction with the Copper Queen Hospital, take place Oct. 2 – Nov. 6, 9 – 11:30 a.m., at the Health Matter building across from Safeway at 850 W. State Route 92.

Caregivers or family members who serve as caregivers are also welcome. For information or to register, contact 520.432.9490 or cmorales@cochise.az.gov.
