AASC to Host Evidence-Based Chronic Disease Workshop

Appalachian Agency for Senior Citizens (AASC) will be hosting an evidence-based Chronic Disease Workshop entitled, “Live Well, Virginia!” on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm-8:30pm at Cedar Bluff Community Church beginning on February 21, 2017.

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. Classes will meet once a week for six weeks to discuss topics related to chronic diseases, healthy eating, goal-setting and light exercise all while having fun.

A recent completer of the class stated, “I would recommend this class simply for the fact that the information delivered was superb.” This class is free to anyone attending and snacks will be provided. Please contact Chase Meade-Patton at 276.964.4915 for more information and to sign-up. Classes are limited to 16 participants.
