Workshop forming to support those with chronic conditions

Griffin Hospital is hosting a pair of free six-week workshops to help individuals suffering from chronic conditions take back control of their lives.

Live Well Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshops provide health information and strategies to help those with chronic conditions like diabetes, depression, heart disease, arthritis, and pain and anxiety increase their energy and take control of their health.

Both workshops will be held at the hospital, 130 Division Street, Derby.
