Posted on January 3, 2023

Happy Healthy New Year!  COSA’s Health and Wellness Program is offering the nationally recognized evidence-based Chronic Pain Self-Management Program developed at Stanford University in a small group format using an on-line meeting format on ZOOM once a week on Wednesdays from January 18th through February 22nd.  The program is sponsored by COSA in collaboration with the PA Department of Aging and it is available at no cost to PA residents age 60 and over.  Those who attend the program will receive program materials sent directly to their home which include the Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain Book and Moving Easy CD.

Those registering for the program are committing to:

·        Fill out a short registration survey with me over the phone.

·        Receive program materials delivered directly to your home.

·        Attend 6 group on-line sessions once a week for six weeks.

·        Complete a short last session and 4-week follow-up survey either over the phone or by mail.

The program will be held on Wednesdays, beginning January 13th through February 22nd from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon and will run once a week for 6 weeks.  To register e-mail williamse@co.delaware.pa.us  or leave a message with your name, address, phone number and email at 610-499-1937 and you will be contacted to register over the phone. 

I look forward to hearing from you to participate in this Zoom format of offering an AMAZING PROGRAM.  I know this program will empower you to live healthier and feel better through self-managing your chronic pain.  See what a previous participant has said about the program:

“This course has been a transformative experience for me.  The content is excellent ... And my pain intensity and frequency are significantly decreased!  Now I know how to go forward.”

Please note space is limited for this program and you must register soon in order to receive your program materials before the beginning of the 1st session.  Don’t miss out – take advantage of the opportunity to flex your power over pain.
