As the New Year begins, community members who suffer from a chronic disease can learn how to improve their health status.
Oswego Health will offer another session of its free Healthy Living classes at Oswego Hospital. The six-week class will be held on Tuesdays, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. starting January 10 in the hospital’s cafeteria conference room. The program ends Feb. 14th.
The program developed by Stanford University, is designed to help those with any chronic disease, such as arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis or diabetes to improve their health status. The workshops will cover nutrition and exercise, as well as how to get support, deal with pain and fatigue and talk with your physician and family members about your condition. Participants will learn goal setting techniques and establish a step-by-step plan to improve their health.
Those taking part in the program will be provided a free workbook and healthy snacks at each class session.
