OMC Mammoth Spring Offering Chronic Disease Self-Management Classes

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Mammoth Spring Clinic will offer a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) beginning Friday, October 14 at the Mammoth Spring Senior Citizens Activity Center located at 950 Archer Avenue in Mammoth Spring. This six week program is free and open to adults who have chronic health conditions like arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and lung disease. Adults with more than one chronic condition may find the program especially helpful.

The program is conducted as a series of weekly 2 1/2-hour workshops for 6 weeks. Participants learn techniques for coping with the physical and psychological effects of chronic disease, and strategies for reducing symptoms and disability.

Among proven benefits, CDSMP participants report less pain, fatigue, and depression; more energy; better communication with their physicians; better overall health; and increased confidence that they can manage their chronic disease.

For more information or to enroll in the free classes, contact OMC Mammoth Spring Medical Clinic at 870-625-3228.
