‘Living a Healthy Life’ workshop
The Lutheran Home at Topton is accepting registrations for “Living a Healthy Life,” a six-week workshop designed by Stanford University to help improve health for those living with chronic conditions including diabetes, heart disease, COPD and arthritis.
The 2.5-hours-per-week workshops will be held in the team conference room at The Lutheran Home at Topton, 1 S. Home Ave., from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 11, 18 and 25 and Aug. 1, 8 and 15. Family members and caregivers also are invited to participate.
