Individuals with ongoing health conditions still have time to register for Lake Regional Health System’s Show-Me Better Health series.
The series of free workshops is scheduled every Monday, beginning 11 a.m. Nov. 4 at Lil’s Seasons Café & Bakery, 248 S. Main St., in Laurie.
The program, designed to help area residents manage ongoing health issues, like diabetes, heart disease and chronic pain, lasts seven weeks. Participants meet the first week for orientation and an optional free health screening, then 2.5 hours weekly for six weeks to develop needed skills and receive support. Sessions cover topics related to living with a chronic condition, including goal setting, exercise, nutrition, communicating with health professionals, managing emotions, medications and stress reduction.
Each week, participants will meet to set goals and share ideas. During the second session, participants will receive a free book and DVD. Participants each may bring one guest. Lunch will be provided at no cost to participants.
Space is limited, and registration is required. For information, including additional workshop dates, or to register, visit lakeregional.com/SMBH or call 573-348-8222.
