Chronic conditions are conditions which last a long time and require ongoing care. Chronic conditions is a broad term which encompasses both special healthcare needs, such as autism, and diseases, such as cancer. The symptoms of chronic conditions sometimes come and go or flare up at certain times. Even if the symptoms come and go, there are some things that can be done to help manage the chronic condition.
We and our partners have formed the Community Health Network to give people a "one stop shop" for wellness programs. Community Health Network programs give you the tools to take control of your health. Many programs are free or low-cost and are available in your community. These programs are proven to work and are fun and interactive.
