Thursday, April 27, 2017
Erlanger North Hospital, in partnership with the Hamilton County Health Department, is now offering a Living Well workshop to help individuals manage chronic conditions and improve overall health.
 
"Chronic diseases are any disease or condition that persists over a long period of time. These diseases can lead to pain, discomfort, daily challenges, and financial hardship," officials said. 
 
"Living Well is designed to provide participants with techniques to self-manage a variety of chronic health conditions, including heart and lung disease, obesity, arthritis, chronic fatigue, depression, and more.
Participants will learn to manage chronic conditions through workshops focused on the benefits of physical activity, healthy eating, problem solving, breathing techniques, sleeping, and weight management."
 
This free six-week course will be held at Red Bank Community Center, 3620 Tom Weathers Dr. from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. beginning May 3. In order to gain the benefits of this program, participants are strongly encouraged to attend all six sessions.
