Lourdes offers living well workshops for those with chronic disease

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Lourdes Hospital is co-sponsoring the Living Well Workshops. They are free classes to assist individuals in learning better management of chronic diseases or that of a family member. 

The Living Well Workshops are based on the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) developed at Stanford University. 

Some of the topics include how to control pain, manage stress, solve problems, how to start an exercise program, and communicate better with your health care provider and family members.

The program aims to provide helpful tools for people living with chronic health conditions. 

The Living Well Workshops are taught by a licensed facilitator, delivered through a partnership with Jackson Purchase Medical Associates, Murray State University's School of Nursing, Department of Community Leadership and Human Services, Kentucky Department of Aging and Independent Living, Lourdes Hospital and the Kentucky Department of Public Health Chronic Disease Prevention.

The workshops are free and open to the public. Program dates are May 19 and 26, and June 2, 9, 16 and 23 from 9:30 am - noon. 

Classes will be held at the Lourdes Medical Pavilion, Suite #401. For more information, call 270-804-2818.
