A six session program entitled “Living Well With Chronic Conditions” will be taught by University of Tennessee Extension agents from Obion and Gibson counties at sessions set for May 22 and 29 and June 5, 11, 12 and 18 at 1:30 p.m. at Obion County Public Library in Union City.
Family and Consumer Science agents Benita Giffin and Barbara Berry have been certified to teach this Stanford University curriculum. Each class will last about two hours and the program is free to anyone interested.
“Living Well With Chronic Conditions” is a fun, skill-building program designed for individuals and couples with chronic diseases, according to a spokesman. The program helps individuals take day-to-day responsibility for the care of their chronic conditions. Participants gain skills necessary to self-manage their health conditions and work effectively with their health care professionals. At the last class, each participant will receive the book “Living Well With Chronic Conditions.”
Those who register will be expected to attend all six sessions, the spokesman said.
Obion County residents who wish to attend are asked to register by calling Mrs. Giffin at 885-3742 or emailing her at email@example.com. Gibson County residents may contact Ms. Berry at (731) 855-7656
