Learn how to manage your daily symptoms including: pain, fatigue, stress, poor sleep, shortness of breath and physical limitations. The two-hour classes, taught by trained leaders, are fun and interactive. All participants receive a copy of the book, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.” Cost is $10, scholarships are available.
