Albertans living with chronic pain symptoms or who support someone with a long-term health condition(s) have an opportunity to join a free Alberta Health Services (AHS) workshop designed to help them take control of their health.

Better Choices, Better Health is a six-week series of workshops designed to support Albertans living with ongoing health conditions and help them explore ways to manage their health.

In a release, AHS said the Zoom sessions are led by trained volunteer leaders, many of whom live with a chronic health condition. This approach ensures an understanding of the challenges participants face and provides a supportive and welcoming environment. Because those living with ongoing health conditions are often faced with the same day-to-day challenges, Better Choices, Better Health focuses on teaching tools and techniques common to all chronic conditions.

Participants will learn:  

  • Techniques to manage their symptoms.
  • Tips for healthy eating and becoming more active.
  • Strategies for talking with the healthcare team.
  • Methods for dealing with difficult emotions.
  • Options for making everyday tasks easier.
  • Ways to take care of themselves to enjoy a better quality of life.
