There aren’t many benefits to the isolation and lack of social gathering we’ve all experienced during these COVID times, but this is surely one of them: The Stanford-developed programs Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain and Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions have been adapted to virtual workshops. This means that more people can take advantage of the life-changing programs, as the trained facilitators will be teaching via Zoom.
The Living a Health life with Chronic Pain and Living a Healthy Live with Chronic Conditions virtual workshops are offered in partnership with Washington State University Extension Clark County, Southwest Washington Accountable Communities of Health, and DSHS Aging and Long-term Support Administration. More information about both of these workshops can be found
People who’ve participated in the programs say they are better able to manage:
- Heart disease
- Asthma, Bronchitis and Emphysema
- Mental Health and other conditions
Participants also report:
- Less Pain
- More Energy and Vitality
- Greater Independence
- Improved Mental Health
- Better Quality of Life
Even better, 2021 brings a new cadence to the partnership between SWACH and WSU, as well, with several sessions starting soon.
