Take Control With Knowledge: Arthritis Foundation Self-Help Program
Easing Arthritis Pain - "Take Control with Knowledge" is a six-session program created to give people with arthritis and related conditions the knowledge they need to take control of their health. Learn to reduce arthritis pain while improving self-management behaviors. With less pain, reliance on pain medication may be reduced.
Learning to Say "Know" - Engaging group discussion and easy-to-understand course materials will teach the basics of joint anatomy and joint protection, the importance of exercise and nutrition, how to take medications properly and self-help devices that can enhance daily activities. The informal, small group setting allows you to seek answers to your questions and provides ways for better communication with medical providers.
Class sessions are 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Feb. 6 to 22. They are $30 for members, $60 for non-members.
Holistic and Wellness Nurse Sharon Duffy completed the Arthritis Foundation's in-depth training and will lead the class. Attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged. Register at the Front Desk or call 402.413.3556.
