South Peninsula Hospital offers ‘Living Well’ classes

South Peninsula Hospital will offer “Living Well Alaska,” a series of six, two-hour classes to help people with long-term health conditions learn ways to feel better and be less limited by their illness. 

People with all kinds of long-term conditions such as arthritis, asthma, diabetes, heart disease and other illnesses can benefit. A spouse, family member or friend is welcome to attend the classes with participants. Developed at Stanford University and supported by the state of Alaska, “Living Well Alaska” offers a peer empowerment model to help participants manage symptoms, identify and reach personal health goals, and get more out of life. 

The Living Well Alaska classes run 4-6:30 p.m. every Wednesday from Feb. 11-March 18 at the hospital’s Training Center on Pioneer Avenue. The cost is $10 for the six-week session. Registration is required and can be done by calling 235-0285.
