Alberta Health services has started up a new program across the country, including one in Edmonton to aid people living with chronic diseases to help them improve their quality of life.

AHS launched a six-week series of workshops called Better Choices, Better Health designed to support Albertans living with health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, celiac and high blood pressure, among others. The program is free for anyone to attend, and the sessions will be run by volunteers who have lived through chronic diseases to ensure an understanding of the challenges participants face and to provide a supportive and welcoming environment for attendees.


The program runs from 1:30 until 4pm every Friday from October 4th to November 8th. The sessions will be held at the Riverbend Branch of the Edmonton Public Library. To register or for more information, call 780-401-BOOK (2665).
