Colby hospital offers health workshop


COLBY -- Citizens Medical Center staff will offer a chronic disease self-management workshop this fall.

The Kansans for Optimizing Health Program is an interactive and motivational curriculum developed by Stanford University. The class is free, but registration is required.

Participants living with chronic health conditions will learn ways to improve healthy behaviors -- such as exercise and pain management -- and improve their health status.

The class will be from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays beginning next week. To register, call Jeanene Brown in the education department, (785) 460-4850.
