Living Well with Chronic Conditions Workshop educates and helps participants with arthritis, high cholesterol, hypertension, obesity, stroke, anxiety/depression, emphysema, and many other chronic conditions find balance and improve health. Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program.

The next six-week workshop is scheduled Tuesdays, Feb. 14 – March 21, 12:30-2:30 p.m., at Autumn Glow Senior Activity Center (81 E. Center Street, Kaysville).

Stepping On Falls Prevention Workshop is a seven-week evidence-based program proven to reduce falls and build confidence in older people. Do not let the fear of falling keep you from living. Workshop presenters such as a physical therapist, pharmacists and vision experts help you gain specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls.

Separate workshops start in February:

• Thursdays, Feb. 2 - March 16, 2-4 p.m., at the Bountiful Library (725 South Main Street Bountiful)
