healtheastPathways to Better Health: Managing Ongoing Health Conditions is a training program offered by HealthEast Care System for people who are living with chronic health conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, lung disease, heart disease, obesity, cancer, to name just a few. The program also provides training for caregivers and medical professionals.

The program is a series of six weekly workshops that run for 2 to 2.5 hours. The workshops are informal and include a break and healthy snacks. Participants also receive the 380-page reference book Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions. These workshops are provided free of charge.

The workshops themselves are very engaging and cover topics including:
• how to deal with symptoms like pain and fatigue,
• coping with the frustration, anger and/or depression of having a chronic health condition,
• using the mind to manage problem symptoms,
• improving communications with family, medical professionals and others in our lives,
