The Montgomery Health Department, where Hopewell Boro receives Health Department services, will be offering a chronic disease self-management program, called “Take Control of Your Health,” at the Hopewell Boro train station starting September 18th.

“Take Control of Your Health” is a self-management education intervention for adults suffering with chronic health conditions like arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and lung disease and those individual’s caregivers.

The program will be offered as a 6-week series of 2.5 hour long classes during which participants will learn techniques for coping with the physical and psychological effects of chronic disease and strategies for reducing symptoms and disability.

The Montgomery Health Department shares that participants in the past have reported less pain, fatigue, and depression while experiencing more energy, better communication with physicians, better overall health and increased confidence in managing health.
