LIFE Participants Attend Six-Week Workshop, Take Control Of Your Health


In collaboration with AngelaCARES, Inc., LIFE participants attended “Take Control of Your Health” workshops held at LIFE’s center on April 23-May 28. Sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services and the Sickle Cell Association of New Jersey, the workshops were geared toward providing participants with self-management skills to manage chronic conditions on a daily basis while doing things they need and want to do.

The participants learned how to live a healthy lifestyle with chronic conditions such as self management of heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, and other physical and mental health conditions. Participants were given tips, ideas and suggestions on how to improve and live a productive healthy lifestyle. The valuable techniques and tools provided during the workshops helped the participants gain confidence to uphold a positive attitude about their health and help improve their quality of life.
