Chronic Disease Self-Management Program
Mondays, July 15 to Aug. 19, 9:30-11:30 a.m.
Outreach coordinators Kim and Julia are back to teach a new class this summer — the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, a participant education program developed by Stanford University. Participants are adults experiencing chronic health conditions such as hypertension, arthritis, heart disease, stroke, lung disease and diabetes. This program helps to give people the tools and motivation they need to manage the challenges of living with a chronic health condition. The overall goal is to enable participants to build self-confidence to assume an active role in maintaining their health and managing their chronic health conditions. This workshop will be conducted over six sessions, meeting weekly for two hours per session. Those interested should make sure they can commit to all six Mondays before signing up. Space is limited. When registering over the phone, ask for Kim or Julia.

Protect Social Security — You Earned It!
Thursday, July 18, 1 p.m.
In this election year, AARP is fighting to get candidates, regardless of party, to offer solutions for protecting hard-earned Social Security. In this interactive community conversation presented by AARP, attendees will learn how Social Security is funded and about the future health and stability of the program. Individuals also will learn how to help protect Social Security for the hard-working Americans who have earned it, in part by electing candidates who will listen to seniors’ struggles — and pass helpful, common-sense solutions. Those interested should call to register.
