Intro session: Thursday, January 7 11:00AM(see below)

January is a time when many of us look to reset, to review lifestyles and mindsets, check our diets and generally find ways to improve our wellbeing. 

Tools for Healthy Living (or Tools for Managing Your Health and Wellbeing) will help you do just that. This 12-week workshop series focuses on improving the overall health of people of all ages and is of benefit also to those who are managing pain. It may assist to people to age more healthily and help anyone with a chronic condition, whether physical or behavioral, to manage their health. The classes provide you with the self-management tools to make a positive difference in your life.

All the classes are virtual, so you can participate from home, or from any convenient location. Once you have registered, you'll receive a free book to accompany the course.

Not sure if these workshops are for you? Bring your questions to a special open "coffee hour" session on January 7 at 11:00AM ET and find out more! There is no obligation to sign up for the series.

These workshops are brought to you by Providence Community Library in partnership with the Community Health Network (CHN.)

CHN classes have been proven to help people with chronic conditions such as arthritis, pre-diabetes, diabetes, asthma, heart disease, and depression. Classes are also available to support caregivers, improve balance, manage chronic pain, and help quit tobacco. Classes are free or low cost and take place online or in convenient Rhode Island locations. 

CHN is made possible through a partnership between the RI Department of Health and RIPIN
