Lourdes to host chronic disease workshop series

Staff report

Lourdes hospital is co-sponsoring The Living Well Workshops, free classes to assist individuals in learning better management of their own chronic diseases or those of a family member.

The Living Well Workshops are based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program developed at Stanford University.  Some of the topics include how to control pain, manage stress, solve problems, start an exercise program and communicate better with health care providers and family members.

The workshops are held for six weeks, two-and-a-half hours each week. The workshops help people suffering from diabetes, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression and lung disease.

"I enrolled in the class in 2012 because a friend of mine told me about it and it sounded like something I'd be interested in," said Beverly Williams, 66, from Mayfield who has suffered from arthritis and high blood pressure for 10 years.  "The workshops helped me understand different ways to deal with it."

The Living Well Workshops are taught by a licensed facilitator, delivered through a partnership with Lourdes Hospital and a number of health care providers and advocates throughout the Commonwealth.

Program dates are May 13, 20 and 27, and June 3, June 17 and June 24 from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Workshops are free and open to the public.

Classes are held at the Lourdes Medical Pavilion, suite 401.  For more information, call 270-804-2818.
