AASC Needs Volunteers to Lead Workshops

The Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) is seeking volunteers to lead its interactive six-week workshop series called You Can! Live Well, Virginia!

Training is provided to volunteer leaders during four six-hour classes: January 13, 14, 20, and 21. Lunch is provided. Training takes place at AASC’s central location, 216 College Ridge Road, in the Wardell Industrial Park. To sign up or for more information, contact Debbie Barnhart at 276-964-4915.

Intended to help individuals take charge of their health, the workshop series is designed for people with chronic conditions like diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic pain and anxiety. Caregivers of people with chronic diseases may also find the workshop helpful.

You Can! Live Well, Virginia! is made possible by funding from the Administration on Aging, the Virginia Department for the Aging, and the Virginia Department of Health’s Division of Chronic Disease Prevention and Control.

AASC is one of Virginia’s 25 Area Agencies on Aging designated by the Virginia Department for the Aging to carry out the department’s mission to foster the dignity, independence and security of older Virginians by promoting partnerships with communities at the local level. AASC offers information and services for older adults residing in Buchanan, Dickenson, Russell and Tazewell counties.
