To improve participants’ knowledge of living a healthy life with chronic conditions, leaders will be provided with information about issues related to a variety of conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, asthma, arthritis, emphysema and others.

Certification is good for three years and those needing recertification may attend this training course as well. To register or for more information, call Heidi Dunn at the SEMO RAC, 573-331-5880 or 888-216-3293.
