If you or someone you love is dealing with a chronic health condition, then a new class at Mercy St. Francis Hospital may help you learn to cope.
The “Health Care Management Course” is a free six-week workshop, with classes meeting once each week. There are two sessions. The first runs Oct. 2-23 and the second runs Nov. 6-13. The class is co-sponsored by Mercy St. Francis Hospital and University of Missouri Extension in Houston, Mo. Classes meet at the hospital in the Sisters’ Dining Room.
During the program, participants will learn pain management, how to deal with stress and tips for managing frustration. Find out how exercise and nutrition can play a role in easing your symptoms.
While the class is free, you do need to register. Just call (417) 934-7000.
