Self-Management: Staying Happy, Healthy, and Active Between Visits to the Doctor (June 2022)

Even if we have long-term conditions like arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, or Parkinson’s Disease, we want to continue doing the things we need and want to do. At the same time, there are challenges such as pain, depression, fatigue, disability, and/or anxiety. Relationships with friends and family change and we may not know how to use our limited time with health care providers. This session began by finding out the major concerns of the audience and became the focus of the session. It is hoped that each person left with new ideas and the commitment to try a new tool to manage their long-term condition.

Speaker: Dr. Kate Lorig, founder of the Self-Management Resource Center self-management programs, Professor Emerita, School of Medicine, Stanford University.

Recorded June 1, 2022 as a hybrid event with both live and online audiences.
