Oswego Health to Offer Free Chronic Disease Self-Management Program


Oswego Health is offering free workshops for community members who want to better manage their chronic conditions.

The free, six-week program developed by Stanford University will be held Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to noon beginning March 14 at Springside at Seneca Hill.

A similar program was held recently in Oswego and participants remarked that the provided materials offered successful strategies to improve their health status.

“This program provides participants with the knowledge and skills that truly empower them to make lifestyle changes to improve their chronic disease management,” said Rachel Baglia, RN.

Baglia, along with Sue Callaway, RN, will lead the program.

This program is designed to help those with arthritis, heart disease, osteoporosis or diabetes improve their health status through its living healthy workshops.

The workshops will cover nutrition and exercise, as well as how to get support, deal with pain and fatigue and talk with your physician and family members about your condition.

Participants will learn goal setting techniques and establish a step-by-step plan to improve their health.

Those taking part in the program will be provided a free workbook and healthy snacks at each class session.

To register, or if you have questions, please call 349-5513.
