Monday, February 09, 2009

Marinette, Wis. - People living with a long-term health condition are encouraged to join a six-week workshop called ‘Personal Action Towards Health,' or PATH, that will be held Thursday, March 5 through Thursday, April 9. The class will meet once a week on Thursdays from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Aurora Health Center in Marinette, 4061 Old Peshtigo Road.

People living with asthma, arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure, diabetes, fibromyalgia, heart disease, obesity or chronic pain are encouraged to attend with family, friends and caregivers.

PATH will help attendees learn better ways to manage their health by:

  • Setting achievable goals,
  • Getting support, and
  • Relaxing and managing stress.

After the program, people will be better prepared to cope with feelings of sadness, deal with pain and fatigue, eat better, manage medications, relax and discuss health care needs. New topics will be covered each week.

Pre-registration is required. The fee is $10 per person. Call 715-732-8058 to register. Callers can leave their names and contact information on voicemail to reserve a seat. For more information, call 715-732-8054.
