Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? The key to getting the most out of life is learning to manage your symptoms.

These researched and proven Community-based programs are designed to help people manage their ongoing health conditions. The interactive workshops are designed to improve individual self-management skills, build confidence in setting your own goals, and put new problem-solving skills to work in your own life. A different subject matter is taught each week with an overall goal of improved health and fewer sick days.

These small group workshops are led by two trained facilitators and meet for 21/2 hours once a week for six weeks. The workshops are focused to help you manage your conditions, become more active, have more energy, and serve to complement a participant’s current medical plan, but do not replace existing treatments.

Carroll County Bureau of Aging & Disabilities provides at NO COST the Evidence-Based Living Healthy, Living Well self-management workshop series originally developed at Stanford University for those with Chronic Disease, Diabetes, and Chronic Pain.

If the lack of technology prevents interested participants from participating in online BOAD and senior center programs, please contact Erica Starr at 410-386-3800 to learn more.

Participants will receive a "Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions" book and a "Relaxation for Mind and Body" CD. Donations for materials are accepted but not required to participate.
