County Health Workshop Travels to Hana
By Wendy Osher
The county’s “Better Choices…Better Health” program travels to East Maui next month.
The six-week health management workshop, offered by the County of Maui Office on Aging, begins on September 15, 2011 at the Hale Pomaika’i.
The class is held on Thursdays and is limited to 14 participants per class.
The series provides practical information, tools and support to individuals of all ages who are interested in incorporating healthier habits into their lives. The workshops also offer assistance to people with chronic conditions in better managing their health.
Participants learn how to control symptoms through relaxation, nutrition, improved communication skills, medication management, and exercise.
Participants receive the book, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 3rd Edition,” and an audio relaxation CD, “Time for Healing.”
The cost is $10 for participants that are 60 and older, and $35 for those under 60. Scholarships are available for anyone under 60 experiencing financial hardship.
Advance registration is required.
For more information or to register, call Coordinator Robin at 281-0094.
