Chronic Disease Self-Management Program to begin Wednesday

Lee Health's Lee Health Solutions, in partnership with many local community agencies and supported in part initially by a grant from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, is offering "It's All About You" - a research based Chronic Disease Self-Management program developed by Dr. Kate Lorig of Stanford University.

The program is designed for people 18 years of age or older with chronic health conditions to help them learn ways to better manage their chronic conditions and the symptoms that often accompany chronic health conditions.

The workshop is 2.5 hours once a week for 6 weeks and it is free.

The workshop will be offered on Wednesdays beginning May 2 from 9-11:30 a.m. at Lee Health Solutions' office located at 12550 New Brittany Blvd., Fort Myers.

October event to shine light on Hope Clubhouse employment program

Hope Clubhouse will showcase its new work placement initiative for people who've faced a mental illness at its Annual Mental Health Luncheon, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater on 1380 Colonial Blvd., in Fort Myers.

Attorney Kelly L. Fayer of The Law Offices of Kelly L. Fayer, P.A., will serve as event chair and state Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen will be the honorary chair for the luncheon, which will have the theme of "Faces of Hope at Work."

It's designed to spotlight the organization's job placement efforts through the new Hope Works LLC, which connects employers to Hope Clubhouse members, who in turn provide dedicated, reliable and immediate work.

"What's nice about this is it's a win-win, because the employer can have a person who really cares and wants to do a great job," Fitzenhagen said. "They can benefit because the Hope Clubhouse member is going to do a job that someone else might not want to do, and do it well, and with a great deal of pride."

Fayer has been involved on the luncheon's host committee and as a sponsor for years, and she can provide personal testimony for Hope Clubhouse job placement services, having previously hired Hope Clubhouse members to work in her law office.

Luncheon sponsorship packages are available. Event proceeds benefit the programs and services at Hope Clubhouse. Call 239-900-4200 for more information.
