Stanford Chronic Conditions Program*
If you are a senior with a chronic condition who would like to learn to live a
healthier, more comfortable life, this program is for you.
Developed by the Stanford School of Medicine, "Seniors Take Charge: Stanford
Chronic Conditions Self-Management Program" will help you more effectively
manage fatigue, pain, anger, and depression. The six-week program also supports
eating healthier and developing and maintaining a manageable exercise routine. The program meets once a week for six weeks. Two offerings are currently
- Wednesdays, April 3 through May 8 from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- Thursdays, May 16 through June 20 from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
"We are very excited about partnering with Tuolumne County Public Health to
bring this wonderful program to our local seniors," says Pauline White, Executive
Director of Area 12. "Studies show that program participants experience less
fatigue, generally feel healthier and need fewer doctor and hospital visits up to
three years after they take the classes."
The program is offered free, but pre-registration is required. For more information or to reserve your space, call program coordinator Joan Jackson at Practical
Dreamer (209) 588-1835 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested, but these class dates don't work for you, please call Joan
and let her know.
