LIVING WELL WITH CHRONIC CONDITIONS

Many people, particularly as they age, can develop health conditions that are persistent, long-term, and can impact their quality of life. These conditions, such as arthritis, asthma, heart disease, emphysema/COPD, depression and anxiety, are often called chronic conditions. They may not be life-threatening, but may shorten a person’s life span or reduce their quality of life.

Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Community Health Team is hosting a free program, Healthier Living with Chronic Conditions, at the Godnick Center, starting June 12, 12:30 — 3 p.m. and running every Wednesday for six consecutive weeks.

This program focuses on helping people learn to make small, practical lifestyle changes, work alongside others who have similar health issues, learn how to communicate more effectively with their physician, and appropriately manage medications.

For more information or to enroll contact Krista Neary, at 802-776-5507 or email klneary@rrmc.org.
