The workshops are designed to help individuals with arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, heart disease, and other chronic health conditions.

“Help Yourself to Health” is a chronic disease self-management program, developed at Stanford University, to give seniors the knowledge and tools they need to manage their ongoing medical conditions.

 

Philadelphia Corporation for Aging is one of four Area Agencies on Aging to receive federal stimulus funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Aging for this program, through the Administration on Aging.
