The Niagara County Department of Health and the county Office for the Aging are offering free chronic disease self-management workshops, starting next week in Wheatfield and Newfane.

Both will consist of six weekly sessions, each running from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

The Wheatfield course will be held, starting Thursday, in the Wheatfield Community Center, 2790 Church Road. The Newfane series begins Friday in Eastern Niagara Hospital-Newfane, 2600 William St.

The program complements a participant’s current health care, enhancing the person’s ability to manage health, and to maintain an active lifestyle. Caregivers may attend as well to take advantage of opportunities to learn, share and support each other.

Registration is available through the Office for the Aging at 438-3030 or the Health Department’s Nursing Division at 278-1900.
