If you live with a chronic health condition like arthritis, chronic pain, depression, diabetes, heart disease, cancer or MS, then Living Well Thurston 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 2 1/2-hour sessions held once a week for six weeks. This program helps you take control of your health in just six weeks! 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.

We have two workshop series coming soon!
