If you live with a chronic health condition like arthritis, chronic pain, depression, diabetes, heart disease, cancer or MS, then the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services, Living Well Thurston workshop series is for you!

Living Well Thurston is a series of community workshops, sometimes referred to as a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, developed by Stanford University. Workshops are two-and-a-half-hour sessions held once a week for six weeks. This program helps you take control of your health! Workshop sessions are facilitated by two trained leaders with at least one having personal experience with a chronic health condition. This program can increase your ability to manage your chronic condition and live a more active and fulfilling life. Some topics included in the workshops are: action planning, problem solving, pain/fatigue management, how to plan for your future, healthy eating, medication management, making informed decisions, physical activity, how to work with your healthcare provider and system, and many more.

The workshops are free to participants and includes a Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions book. Our next workshop series is every Thursday, October 10 – November 14, 2019, 2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
