Developed by Stanford University, Living Well with Chronic Conditions is a proven six-week workshop that teaches people with a wide variety of illnesses how to better manage the physical, social and emotional effects of chronic conditions like arthritis, diabetes, and lung and heart disease.
The program is designed to help empower people to manage their health by providing tools for coping with disease symptoms, improving quality of life, and strengthening or building a support system to navigate the many challenges encountered along the way.

Want to lead the course?
The Knox County Health Department is looking for committed volunteer lay leaders to lead Living Well with Chronic Conditions workshops.
Volunteer lay leaders do not need to be healthcare experts, as the workshop is focused on helping participants learn from each other and from the scripted program.
Training for leaders takes place January 22, 23, 29 and 30 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Knox County Health Department. Call 865-215-5170 for more information.
