A free workshop that promotes reduced health care costs, reduced limitations due to secondary health conditions and better daily living begins this month in two northern Utah locations. Living Well with a Disability begins Monday, May 14 in Ogden and Tuesday, May 15 in Logan.

While the workshop is free, registration is required. Topics include goal setting, problem solving, healthy reactions, beating the blues, healthy communication, seeking information, physical activity, eating well to live well, self-advocacy and maintaining healthy behaviors.

Living well with a Disability is based on the independent living philosophy that emphasizes personal choice, self-determination and peer spport as essential components for living independently in the community. The 10-session event is facilitated by peer-trained instructors.

Living Well with a Disability is part of a suite of chronic disease self-management education programs. They are offered through community partnerships, including the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University and the Utah Department of Health.
