Living Healthy: A Chronic Disease Self Management Program

Coping with a chronic health condition such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease or arthritis, can be difficult and frustrating. Living Healthy is an evidence-based, highly successful, six-week course.

It was created by Stanford University and is designed to help participants better manage their chronic health conditions in an interactive and supportive atmosphere.

The program helps participants find ways to achieve desired goals that may have otherwise seemed unachievable. The program is free and will be presented by the Chautauqua County Health Network and the Chautauqua County Office for the Aging on Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m. from Dec. 17 to Feb. 4 at Chautauqua Colony, 2109 Southwestern Drive, Lakewood.

Due to the holidays there will be no class on Dec. 24 or Dec. 31.

The Living Healthy program is sponsored by the Chautauqua County Health Network (CCHN) and P2 Collaborative of Western New York Inc. Registration is required and class size is limited.
