The County of Maui Department of Housing and Human Concerns Office on Aging will sponsor a healthy living workshop beginning Monday, June 18, entitled “Better Choices…Better Health.”

The workshop will provide practical information, tools and support to people of all ages who are interested in incorporating healthier habits into their lives.  The sessions will also help individuals with chronic conditions better manage their health.

The six-class format focuses on learning and implementing practical skills used to stay healthy and control symptoms through relaxation, nutrition, improved communication skills, medication management, exercise and more.

Over the course of the program, participants develop achievable “action plans” aimed at leading to positive changes and greater confidence.
