South Peninsula Hospital has been offering the Living Well Alaska workshops for community members once or twice a year since 2009. The focus is on learning to stay as healthy and active as possible even when dealing with health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, obesity, and basically any health condition that requires long term self-management. These fun, interactive workshops were developed by Stanford University and are offered all over the country. In Alaska, training of leaders is through the Department of Health and Social Services and Cooperative Extension. We are excited be able to offer this fun, life changing opportunity!
The next Living Well Workshop is scheduled for September 20th-October 25th, weekly on Mondays from 5pm-7pm, online via Zoom. There is no charge for this workshop, and all you need is a computer, tablet or smartphone and a quiet, private space with a reliable internet connection!
The six week sessions are currently led by PeggyEllen Kleinleder, RN, CDE. Participants must be living with a long term health condition themselves, or caring for a close family member or friend with a long term health condition. Please consider signing up, maybe with a family member or friend, or just help us spread the word.
If you are interested in participating, on your own or with a friend, contact PeggyEllen Kleinleder at (907) 235-0311 to register or for more information.
