Free Workshops for Chronic Health Conditions

Alberta Health Services from AHS, January 9, 2024 @ 4:00 pm

Living with a chronic health condition can be hard. But help is available.

If you or someone you support are living with a long-term health condition and have been struggling, this could be the year you take control of your health and create a better quality of life.

Better Choices, Better Health is a free six-week long workshop series designed to empower participants with the skills and knowledge to manage their health.

You will learn about:

  • Managing symptoms like pain, fatigue, stress.

  • Talking to loved ones, healthcare professionals and your colleagues about your health needs.

  • Dealing with difficult feelings.

  • Ways to eat healthy and stay active.

  • Problem-solving and setting realistic plans.

The workshops are led by trained volunteer leaders, many of whom live with a chronic health condition. The volunteer leaders understand the challenges participants face and provide a supportive and welcoming environment for everyone.

Because those living with ongoing health conditions are often faced with the same day-to-day challenges, Better Choices, Better Health focuses on teaching tools and techniques common to all chronic conditions.

Depending on your needs there are two workshops to choose from:

  • Better Choices, Better Health® - Chronic Disease: for those with conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, gastrointestinal (GI), depression, long COVID-19, and others.

  • Better Choices, Better Health® - Chronic Pain: for those with conditions like fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, persistent pain, migraines, arthritis, and others.

Workshops are offered virtually via Zoom and in-person. There are several dates and times to fit most schedules, but spaces are limited.
