Mid-East Community Action Agency’s senior services department and Roane County Health Department are partnering to offer a chronic disease self-management program beginning Feb. 27.
Classes will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. each Wednesday through April 3 in the health department at 1362 N. Gateway Ave., Rockwood.
The workshop is for anyone who is dealing with a chronic health concern, including but not limited to heart disease, cancer, depression, asthma, COPD, chronic pain, or diabetes.
Participants will be taught how to better manage symptoms, effective medication management and problem solving, relaxation techniques, exercise ideas, tips for eating well, and how to work successfully with their health-care team.
The class is free.
Participants work in a group and create weekly individual goals in a friendly, stress-free environment.
Healthy snacks will be provided.
