Good idea and we hope it succeeds

We found this post and we instantly thought it was a good idea, simple but obvious. It is the first step on the education ladder to creating expert patients and expert carers.

Arnot Health is offering a series of monthly educational classes for adults with or those who know or care for someone with congestive heart failure. The classes are scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. beginning Oct. 27 in the Petrie East Conference Room at Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira New York State.

Participants will be served a different soup and salad using low-sodium recipes. Recipe books and coupons will be provided.

The following topics will be presented in the series:

» Oct. 27 — What is heart failure?

» Nov. 17 — Managing heart failure with other chronic conditions

» Dec. 15 — Helping to manage your disease with diet

» Jan. 19 — Emotional aspects of the chronic condition

» Feb. 23 — Heart failure medications

» March 22 — Exercising to promote a healthy heart
