If you are living with a chronic condition or are a caregiver for someone living with a chronic condition, you might be interested in an upcoming free program coordinated by Rappahannock Rapidan Community Services and hosted by Powell Wellness Center.

The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program includes a 2.5 hour session one day a week for six weeks. It’s a small workshop for anyone with a chronic condition (diagnosed or not) and for caregivers of persons with chronic conditions. Interactive discussions will include managing symptoms, working with your healthcare team, setting weekly goals, effective problem solving, nutrition and exercise.

This is an evidence-based self-management workshop originally developed at Stanford University. The program has been found to improve healthful behaviors such as exercise, coping and communication, health status, and decrease days in the hospital.

The program will be held on Thursdays, 9:30 am – noon, January 12 – February 16, 2023.
