By From page A4 | January 29, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Free classes on how people with chronic health conditions can improve their quality of life begins Feb. 6.

The classes take place from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Thursdays through March 13 at Community Action North Bay, 416 Union Ave. in Fairfield. Families and caregivers are welcome.

Participants learn from peer leaders how to manage symptoms, set weekly goals, solve problems, deal with difficult emotions and communicate effectively with health professionals. Topics include relaxation techniques, how to exercise safely and how healthy eating habits improve one’s well-being, an event press release said.

The Healthier Living chronic disease self-management program was developed by Stanford University in the 1990s. The program is provided by Solano Public Health and the Area Agency on Aging Serving Napa and Solano through CA4Health, a project of the Public Health Institute, with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For information and to register, call 427-1148, ext. 112, or the Area Agency on Aging Serving Napa and Solano at 643-1797.
