Although there is no cure, when chronic conditions  are managed well, those living with chronic, or long-term health conditions can LIVE WELL.  Do you or a loved one suffer from a chronic condition like diabetes, depression, heart disease, arthritis, pain or anxiety, or perhaps several chronic conditions ? Don’t let your chronic health condition hold you or a loved one back from enjoying life.

Griffin Hospital's Live Well Workshops can help. Live Well Workshops aim to help individuals with ongoing health conditions or those caring for a loved one with an ongoing health condition get their lives back.
