Free Healthy Living Classes Start Soon in Benson

Cochise Health and Social Services is pleased to announce a no-cost Healthy Living Workshop co-sponsored by Community Food Pantry of Benson, SEABHS and the Arizona Department of Health Services. The course will be held at the SEABHS Administration building in Benson.

 

The Healthy Living Program is an evidence-based curriculum originally developed by Stanford University to help people more effectively self-manage their chronic diseases. Participants will meet for two and a half hours each week for six weeks. Subjects covered will include:

  • techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, pain, and isolation

  • appropriate nutrition and exercise for maintaining and improving flexibility, strength, balance and endurance

  • appropriate use of medications

  • communicating effectively with family, friends and health professionals

  • getting better sleep

 

Wellness programs like these can have a significant impact on reducing healthcare costs and improving an individual's health because a primary focus is on prevention of multiple chronic diseases and reducing risk factors.  If you, family members or caregivers are living or caring for someone with a chronic condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, depression, cancer or obesity, please join us in our next life-changing workshop at:

 

SEABHS Administration Building
611 W. Union St.
Benson, AZ  85602

 

Sessions 1 thru 6

Each Thursday, October 5 – November 9
9:00 am – 11:30 am

Registration contact: Najayyah Many Horses, thehealthylife4u@gmail.com or 520-719-0179

 

The sponsors of this program are working to build and sustain the Healthy Living Program within Cochise County, not only through professional collaborations, but also through motivating an ongoing commitment to individual and public health by local businesses, city councils, community organizations, volunteers, and citizens battling chronic diseases.

Participation in the workshop is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information on the Healthy Living Program in Cochise County please contact Alexandra Barton, Healthy Living Program Coordinator at abarton@cochise.az.gov or (520) 432-9496.
