Manage chronic diseases

Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic begins a free workshop series called Living Well With Chronic Conditions.

It runs for six weeks, 6:30-9 p.m. Wednesdays beginning May 12, at Olympic Medical Center, 840 N. Fifth Ave., Sequim.

Living Well teaches practical skills to help people manage the physical symptoms and emotional distress associated with long-term illnesses including diabetes, asthma, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, chronic pain or arthritis. The series will be led by Stanford University-trained facilitators Bob Boardman and Diane Clementi.

Space is limited, so reserve early. Call 866-582-1487 or 360-538-2457.

This free series is part of a Diabetes Education Project funded by the Washington Department of Health. Living Well also is supported by the Olympic Area Agency on Aging and the National Council on Aging.

The Diabetes Education Project is for uninsured or underinsured residents who are diagnosed with or at risk of diabetes. For more information, call 582-0218.
