HealthVisions East St. Louis completed its fifth “Living a Healthy Life” workshop that was conducted at Unity Lutheran Church, located at 42nd & Caseyville in East St. Louis. Ten participants completed the six sessions including Pastor Willie Stallworth. Like all of the other individuals at the other churches, Unity Lutheran’s participants were just as enthusiastic about the workshop.

Living a Healthy Life-Live Well, Be Well is a six week group education workshop series for adults living with a chronic condition. The Patient Education Research Center at Stanford University developed the program to help people with chronic conditions gain self-confidence in their ability to manager their health. The sessions provide information regarding issues related to a variety of conditions - diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, emphysema and many other health problems.
