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.
