What is a Chronic Disease?
The U.S. National Center for Health Statistics qualifies a disease as chronic
when it has lasted for more than 3 months. Some of these diseases may
be permanent, while others can be remedied with proper care. In either
case, a proper health plan can minimize their effects and possibly allow
patients to live normal lives.
The following can be qualified as chronic diseases:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Aftereffects of stroke
Classes are $70 a month and held twice a week. Call (719) 530-2057 to learn
