Many people, particularly as they age, can develop health conditions that are persistent, long-term and can impact their quality of life. These conditions such arthritis, asthma, heart disease, emphysema/COPD, depression, and anxiety are often called chronic conditions. They may not be life-threatening but may shorten a person's life span or reduce their quality of life.
Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Community Health Team is hosting a free program, Healthier Living with Chronic Conditions, at the Godnick Center, starting June 12, 2019, 12:30-3pm and running every Wednesday for six consecutive weeks.
This program focuses on helping people learn to make small, practical lifestyle changes, work alongside others who have similar health issues, learn how to communicate more effectively with their physician, and appropriately manage medications.
