Take a Step to Better Health Today!

As we mentioned in our June 5 Press Release (Arthritis Makes Life Tougher for Missourians Living with Chronic Conditions; Self-Management Programs Can Help), "Non-drug options to reduce pain and improve function include increasing physical activity and participating in self-management programs." This week we'll feature why self-management and physical activity programs can be so important to improving your health.  If you're ready to take a Step to Better Health today, we have our newest list of our upcoming scheduled programs available below.  We'll also include a list of our ongoing physical activity classes in a post later this week!
