“Living Well with Chronic Conditions,” a Stanford chronic disease self-management program, is planning a six-week series to teach participants practical skills for better living. The meetings will be from 2 to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays starting this Tuesday and running though July 7 in Mayo HealthReach Meeting Room 1, 1705 S.E. Broadway in Albert Lea.

Any adult with a long-term condition such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, Parkinson’s disease, depression, heart or lung disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis or another long-term condition are welcome to attend.

The goals of these meetings are to give participants support, help them find ways to deal with pain and fatigue, discover better nutrition and exercise choices, understand and manage symptoms, learn ways to talk to their doctor and family about their health and plan for the future.
