Sawtooth Mountain Clinic and Juniper offer Living Well with Chronic Conditions. 

An ever-increasing number of people are living longer with chronic pain and/or multiple chronic conditions. Research has proven that people with chronic conditions can learn skills to effectively manage their illness and improve health outcomes. 

This 6-class program is designed to help participants deal with chronic conditions.

Topics include:

  • techniques to deal with frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation,
  • appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance,
  • appropriate use of medications,
  • communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals,
  • nutrition, and
  • how to evaluate new treatments.

Classes start March 21 and the cost is $20.  Scholarships are available.
