WHAT IS BETTER CHOICES, BETTER HEALTH?

Alberta Health Services offers a free six-week group workshop for adults over 18 years who have or support someone with a chronic health condition(s), including chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes. The workshop helps you explore ways to manage your health and live your life, one step at a time.

HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT ME?
BCBH® is led by two trained leaders who have experience with a long-term health condition(s) in their own life. Together, participants and leaders learn from each other by sharing their experiences and exploring possible solutions.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?
 Managing your symptoms, pain, fatigue, sleep issues and stress
 Talking to loved ones and healthcare providers about your condition
 Setting realistic weekly action plans for your health and life
 Problem solving, decision making, and more
