Living Healthy with Chronic Illness—Begins April 6

The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is offering the Living Healthy Workshop, beginning Wednesday morning, April 6, in Garden City.

The Living Healthy Workshop, developed at Stanford University Patient Education Research Center, is a free 6-session health education program for people with any type of ongoing, chronic health problem; it is also appropriate for caregivers.

The Workshop will meet every Wednesday for six weeks, beginning April 6, from 9 am to 11:30 am at the Adelphi University Campus in Garden City at the Social Work building.

This is part of an evidence-based practice curriculum developed at Stanford University Patient Research Center, through a partnership with Northwell Health. Participants will learn to set small achievable goals, problem solving, the benefits of exercise, decision making strategies, reduction of pain and fatigue, relaxation, nutrition and eating better, to improve communication, positive thinking and how to work with their health care providers.

Space is limited and attendees must commit to attend all six sessions. To sign up, email social worker Erin Nau at or call her at 516-877-4314.
