Managing Chronic Conditions with Self-Management Tools

July 01, 2021 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm

According to the CDC, nearly half of US adults are affected by chronic health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and arthritis. These conditions limit function, health, activity, and work for these people, affecting the quality of their lives as well as the lives of their families. However, research shows that learning how to address problems and make informed decisions about health can help these people live a healthier life.

Join this noontime webinar for an overview of common symptoms that many people living with ongoing or chronic conditions experience and an introduction to self-management tools that can help them successfully manage symptoms. You will have a chance to practice using several self-management techniques including mindful breathing, goal setting and action planning, and problem solving, giving you immediate tools to set you on the path of increased wellness.

This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.
