Description   Tired of being tired, anxious or in pain? Build confidence around managing an ongoing health condition with this six-session workshop. Learn about handling pain and fatigue, eating well, fun ways to get active, and tips for talking with your doctor and family.

Living Well for Better Health workshops are proven to work. The Division of Family and Community Medicine in the School of Medicine at Stanford University developed, tested and evaluated this program and found:
•People, who took the program, when compared to those who did not, demonstrated significant improvements in exercise, cognitive symptom management, and communication with physicians, self-reported general health, health distress, fatigue, disability, and social/role activities and limitations.
•Spent fewer days in the hospital
•Trend toward fewer outpatient visits and hospitalizations
