Lethbridge workshop to help those with chronic disease

March 4, 2019

Registration is open for a six-week workshop series that helps local residents living with chronic disease.

Participants will have an opportunity to receive support to take control of their health and improve their quality of life.

Better Choices, Better Health is a six-week program  by Alberta Health Services (AHS) designed that supports Albertans with conditions such as diabetes, obesity, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, colitis, Celiac disease and more.

The sessions are led by trained volunteers who themselves live with a chronic disease.  

Teaching topics used are common to all chronic conditions rather than any one specific disease.They include: solving problems, setting goals, handling pain, nutrition, communication with healthcare professionals, and more.

Workshops will run from 1 - 3:30 p.m. on six consecutive Wednesdays beginning March 13 at Alberta Healthy Living Program location in the Melcor Centre.
