CHRONIC PAIN SELF-MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP: Sea Mar Community Health Center, in collaboration with the Olympic Area Agency on Aging, has scheduled a FREE Workshop open to the public: “Living Well with Chronic Pain”. This workshop will be held one day a week (Mondays, 2.5 hours, 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.) for six consecutive weeks beginning Jan. 5, 2015, and continuing on Jan. 12, 19, 26 and Feb. 2, with the last class ending on Monday, Feb. 9, in the first-floor conference room at 1813 Sumner Ave., Aberdeen. Two specifically trained leaders will facilitate the workshop. This program was developed by Stanford University for people who have primary or secondary diagnoses of chronic pain and is designed to give participants the skills and confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active, fulfilling lives. Subjects covered include: (1) techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, isolation and poor sleep; (2) appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance; (3) appropriate use of medications; (4) communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals: (5) nutrition; (6) pacing activity and rest and (7) how to evaluate new treatments. The goal of the program is to help you live a healthy life with your chronic pain by managing your symptoms. Space for the workshop is limited so please register early. For more information and registration, please call 1-866-582-1487 or (360) 538-2457. The meeting site is accessible to persons with disabilities.

BE A READING BUDDY: Public schools across the country have faced system-wide budget cuts. Increased classroom sizes and reductions in aide staff challenge our teachers. The Grays Harbor Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) wants to help! We are recruiting citizens age 55 plus to be Reading Buddies. Many studies show that if a child is not reading at grade level by 3rd grade, it greatly impacts their ability to graduate high school on time. By helping students learn to read you will promote reading appreciation and success. For about one hour per week, YOU can make a difference. Call Jenny today to learn more about the program.
