PROVO — The Utah County Health Department, Utah Arthritis Program, and Mountainland Association of Governments are promoting "Living Well With Chronic Conditions," a six-class self-management series.
The classes are designed for those with chronic conditions to better manage the condition, decrease pain, decrease visits to doctors and enjoy life more.
Classes are tailored for individuals living with a chronic condition or for those who live with someone with a condition such as asthma, arthritis, fibromyalgia, cancer, heart disease, emphysema, depression or chronic pain.
Subjects covered will include: techniques to combat frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation; appropriate exercise to maintain and improve strength; appropriate use of medications and proper nutrition; techniques to effectively communicate with family, friends, and health professionals; and guidelines to evaluate new treatments.
The classes begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 5, in the department's American Fork office, 599 S. 500 East, and run for consecutive Tuesdays through Sept. 9. Classes run about two hours and are free, but registration is required.
For more information or to sign up, call 801-851-7528.
