Empowerment for Better Living

Put Life Back Into Your Life. Consider attending Empowerment for Better Living Workshops.

If you would like to learn how to better manage your health, sign up for a free six-week workshop presented by Kaweah Delta Health Care District.  The workshop is designed to help people with ongoing health problems such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma, chronic pain or any other chronic condition. Class size is typically around 12-18 participants. Each session lasts 2 ½ hours. Topics that are covered include: dealing with difficult emotions, managing symptoms, goal setting, problem solving, nutrition, understanding medications, making informed treatment decisions, and increasing strength and stamina through better fitness. 

This workshop was developed by Dr. Kate Lorig at Stanford University. Participants demonstrate significant improvements in the areas covered. They also report fewer hospitalizations and outpatient visits.
