Tips for Coping with Chronic Illness During the Holidays
You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat discussion.
The holidays are just around the corner. While they are a time to celebrate, sometimes it can be stressful for someone dealing with a chronic illness. Being a patient can take a lot out of you, both physically and mentally. How can you take care of the holiday rush and yourself at the same time? Let’s discuss this Friday, November 1st.
