A series of classes, Take Charge of Your Health, will return to Hoffman Estates beginning Friday, Aug. 29.
The free, six-week program for seniors who have chronic health conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, or heart disease, or for individuals who live with someone who has a chronic health condition, will be offered each Friday through Oct. 3.

The Stanford University-developed program covers a wide variety of topics, including physical activity, sleep, weight management, and relaxation techniques. Class participants learn to use a variety of self-management tools to help them take charge of their health.
