  • Lake Regional Health System is now taking registrations for the Show-Me Better Health program in Richland.
     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.
     The series of free workshops is scheduled every Tuesday, beginning at 6 p.m. April 1, at the MOCA Office, 306 S. Pine St., Richland.
     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. A light meal will be provided at no cost to participants.
     Previous Camden County Show-Me Better Health participants are encouraged to attend the April 1 session for a free follow-up health screening. 
    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.
     Additional workshops will be offered on an ongoing basis, rotating among locations in Camden, Miller and Morgan counties.
