Living with a chronic disease can be difficult. Whether you or a loved one lives with the disease, we are here to help. Family Medicine offers free six-week Living Healthy Classes, led by trained facilitators. These classes help you develop action plans and healthy coping skills in a judgement free environment.
Due to COVID-19, classes are being offered virtually through Zoom. See below for more information!
About the Class
The curriculum covers a number of topics including exercise, nutrition, stress management, and important questions to ask your doctor. This spring, we will have a series of classes at the Family Medicine Center and in Orange, Chatham and Alamance Counties. Each participant will receive a free book when they join the class, as well as an incentive for each chapter.
