The County of Maui Department of Housing and Human Concerns’ Office on Aging has announced it will sponsor a “Better Choices…Better Health” health management workshop beginning March 10th.

Better Choices Better Health workshops provide practical information, tools and support to people of all ages who are interested in incorporating healthier habits into their lives, and help people with chronic conditions better manage their health.

The workshops consist of a series of six classes that focus on learning and implementing practical skills used to stay healthy and control symptoms through relaxation, nutrition, improved communication skills, medication management, exercise and more. Participants develop achievable “action plans” that lead to positive changes and greater confidence.

The workshop series will run on consecutive Thursdays from 9 to 11:30 a.m., beginning March 10 at Hale Mahaolu Ekolu Community Hall located at 717 B Makaala Drive, Wailuku, 96732.
