Participants develop skills and coping strategies to manage symptoms through setting achievable goals, problem-solving, decision-making, social support, and more.
Healthy Living workshops are an opportunity to put health first and take the time needed to form new, healthy habits in an encouraging environment. Only 20% of personal health is determined by what happens in the doctor’s office.
