National Council on Aging em­ployees with chronic health conditions can learn more about their diseases by enrolling in a free six-week, online program designed to increase their activity and improve their health.

The nonprofit is offering “Better Choices, Better Health,” developed by the Stanford University School of Medicine, as a benefit to all its full-time staff and their families.

Testing of the program has shown that it helps participants decrease their fatigue, exercise more, expand their self-confidence and improve their health.  

Often led by trained facilitators with a chronic condition themselves, participants address topics such as fatigue, sleep, pain, shortness of breath, stress reduction, dealing with difficult emotions, planning for the future, locating and using community resources, building communication skills and asking for help.
