“Controlling Chronic Illness” Workshops Need Volunteer Leaders

More From This Author

Do you, or someone you care for, struggle to manage diabetes, arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, sickle cell, pain, depression or other ongoing health conditions?  The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) of Deep East Texas is looking for people who want to help others learn to better control chronic illnesses.  There is no prior teaching experience required – just a desire to help themselves, or others, better manage their on-going health conditions.

There are four days of mandatory training.  The training sessions are scheduled for January 14th, 15th and 16th with two final sessions on January 22nd and 23 rd.  All of the sessions will be held from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Nacogdoches County Extension Office in the Courthouse Annex at 203 West Main in Nacogdoches, Texas.

“The information, tips and techniques we have to offer are geared towards people who want to help themselves, and others, better manage these chronic diseases,” says Holly Anderson, the AAA Director.  There is no fee for participating in the program.  Snacks and beverages will be provided during the breaks.

To register for the workshop, or get additional information, contact Bobbie Stott at the Area Agency on Aging of Deep East Texas at (409) 384-7614 or bstott@detcog.org.   You can also contact Marie Naverrete at (409) 384-7614 or mnaverrete@detcog.org.  Funding for the “Controlling Chronic Illness” training workshops is being provided by the Texas Department of Aging and Disabilities.
