Land O’Lakes Community Services, in conjunction with Kingston Community Health Centre and Stanford University, is holding educational workshops in Northbrook on "Living Well With Chronic Disease". This free, six-week workshop will help participants gain information and skills to actively achieve their best health and wellness while managing one or more ongoing conditions like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, kidney disease, depression, lung disease, and others. They are learning how to deal with the emotional, physical, and social aspects of living with a chronic condition. They will better understand how to manage symptoms, medications and side-effects; while improving communication with health care team members. They will learn about healthy lifestyles, managing stress, make action plans and set goals. The facilitators, Nancy Willis and Pam Lemke, received their training with Stanford University, and have been certified to deliver the program. If you missed this workshop, others will be offered in the future. For more information, call Pam Lemke @ 613-336-8934 ext. 229.
