A Lifetime of NEW Options for a Healthier You!
Get on the PATH
A PATH to Better Health Workshop is being offered at UPCAP in Escanaba starting in November!
Managing your health starts with taking care of yourself. A PATH workshop offers you a hands-on opportunity to discover solutions that work with your life and your health concerns.
If a chronic health problem or condition such as arthritis, diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia or heart or lung disease has kept you from doing the things you want to do, you are not alone. As many as 80% of older adults are living with at least one chronic condition. With mutual support from others in a PATH workshop, you can build confidence to make new choices and feel better. Set your own goals and put new problem-solving skills to work in your life, you are in charge. It’s about doing what’s important to you – and not just living, but learning to live well!
PATH is a six-week evidence based workshop for adults of all ages or the partner, spouse or caregiver of someone who has a chronic health problem or condition. It is led by trained leaders-many who have a chronic health condition themselves – and focuses on helping participants feel better, have more control, and do the things they want to do.
This FREE workshop will meet once a week on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the UPCAP office located at 2501 14th Ave South in Escanaba, MI – starting November 12th and ending on December 17th, 2019. There is no cost to attend this workshop and all materials and a snack are provided.
