“It was time to take care of me.” These words, spoken by Sherri Hayes, 52, of Kansas City, Missouri - North, ring true for many participants of self-management programs. Hayes acted as a caregiver for her parents and in-laws who were aging and had chronic health conditions for a number of years. When she was no longer acting in that role, she realized that she needed to put herself first for a change. She reached out to her employer and asked if within their office they could host a program that her organization, the Arthritis Foundation Heartland Region, has long promoted to others. It all “kind of fell into place; it was just the time to do it,” said Hayes.
