Workshops provide health management tools during COVID-19 pandemic

The North Country Healthy Heart Network has teamed up with the St. Lawrence Health Initiative and the New York State Office for the Aging to promote Better Choices, Better Health, a free, six-week online workshop to help people prevent or better manage diabetes, high blood pressure, or other chronic disease, as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Better Choices, Better Health’s self-paced workshop is designed by Stanford University to help people with a wide range of medical conditions, including anxiety, COPD, diabetes (type 1 & type 2) and more.

The workshop will help participants stay informed about medications and physical activity, as well as pain, stress, and isolation management skills. For more information and to register, visit bit.ly/bcbh2020.
