Two Free Self-Management Programs offered by
Rutland Regional

Rutland, VT: Rutland Regional Medical Center's Community Health Team is hosting two free programs in February: Healthier Living with Chronic Conditions and Healthier Living Workshop for Diabetes Management.

Living with chronic pain can affect every aspect of your life, from your ability to work and maintain relationships to shopping for food and making the bed. In fact, about 100 million Americans are currently living with chronic pain. That number exceeds those living with diabetes, cancer, and heart disease combined.

A free Chronic Pain Self-Management Program begins on Monday, February 3, 2019, from 11am-1:30pm at Templewood Court, 5 Tremont Street, Rutland. This program will focus on problem solving, proper medication usage, emotions, exercise, and nutrition. There is also guidance offered around talking with family, friends, and healthcare professionals regarding pain.

Diabetes can cause serious health problems like heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure. If you are living with Type 2 Diabetes, the Healthier Living Workshop for Diabetes can get you the support you need to better manage your disease and prevent these serious problems. This free program takes place on Monday, February 3, 2:30-5:00pm at the Templewood Court, 5 Tremont Street, Rutland, Vermont.

This small group workshop is led by specially trained leaders. You will learn about healthy eating, exercise, monitoring blood sugar, managing stress, and handling sick days.

For more information or to enroll in either or both of these free workshops, contact Brandon Hunter, Community Health Team, 802.776.5507 or email
