Program help with ongoing symptoms of COVID-19 - Edmonton Zone

September 28, 2021

Free six-week series of virtual workshops starts next month

EDMONTON – Albertans living with COVID-19 symptoms after their diagnosis have an opportunity to join a free Alberta Health Services (AHS) workshop designed to help them take control of their health.

Better Choices, Better Health is a six-week series of workshops designed to support Albertans living with ongoing health conditions, including COVID-19 symptoms. These workshops are one of many services provided by the Alberta Healthy Living Program, which supports chronic disease management programming throughout the province.

The Better Choices, Better Health workshop sessions are led by trained volunteer leaders, many of whom live with a chronic health condition. This approach ensures an understanding of the challenges participants face and provides a supportive and welcoming environment.

Because those living with ongoing health conditions are often faced with the same day-to-day challenges, Better Choices, Better Health focuses on teaching tools and techniques common to all chronic conditions.

Participants will learn:
