Most of us have some sort of chronic condition we deal with every day, right? Wouldn’t it be great to learn how to better live with that condition? If you have a chronic condition like diabetes, asthma, depression, heart disease, chronic pain, arthritis, or high blood pressure, our Healthy Living Workshops can help! This program is a great way to help you take control of your health and get more out of life.

The program was designed at Stanford University and is proven to help people gain self-confidence in their ability to control their symptoms and understand how their health problems affect their lives.   The best part of this is that people who are able to self-manage their chronic conditions are healthier in the long run and lower their medical bills.  We like to hear that!

The program is open to all CHAS patients with chronic conditions, and/or their caregivers, and is free of charge! The group meets one day per week for 2½ hours for 6 consecutive weeks.  If you  join the workshop, there’s an optional workbook you can buy for $10, but if you complete the class, you’ll get your money back!

Don’t miss this great opportunity! Ask your provider for a prescription. Upcoming workshops starts March 7th at the Market Street Clinic in Spokane, April 9th in Clarkston, WA, and April 18th in Lewiston, ID.
