Are you living with a chronic illness like diabetes, heart disease, or asthma? If so, Davis Health Systems and the Randolph County Health Department have a program for you.
Starting next Wednesday, they'll be hosting "Help Yourself" seminars to teach people how to live with those illnesses.

The six week program will teach people how to better deal with any chronic illness, through a series of two hour lectures at Davis Memorial Hospital.

People will be able to learn ways to eat better, activities to improve their health, and even ways to better take care of themselves.
Instructors will also teach those in attendance ways to cope with the stress that chronic illnesses can bring.
The program was started at Stanford University, and is held at hospitals all over the country.
The sessions are free, and even people who think they are at risk for some of the illnesses are encouraged to come out.
Officials hope that by hosting these information sessions, they'll be able to help people live healthier, longer lives.
"Well there are simple things people can do in their daily lives to help themselves manage a chronic problem or chronic illness, just to help them feel more in control," said Marjory Moses, director of community wellness at Davis Memorial Hospital.
To sign up for the seminars, call the Randolph County Health Department at (304)-636-0396.
