Live Well, Learn How to Fish

By Amy - Coach

I’ve never been fond of fishing. But the quote “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime” has always had meaning for me. When I was offered the opportunity to become a leader of the Living Well with Chronic Conditions Program at the DAHLC, I saw it as an opportunity to bring this adage to life. As a long-time sufferer of GI issues, I am no stranger to chronic disease. I worked closely with my healthcare provider to help manage my condition, but I also needed to “learn how to fish” if I wanted to live a normal life.DAHLC-3459

I am no professional fisherman (woman), but I can now confidently say I know how to direct the boat and work the line. I am a lifelong learner, and I am managing my condition. Now, I get to help others do the same. I want to empower others to become actively engaged in managing their own health. I believe a person’s wellbeing should be approached from a whole person perspective, and that is exactly what this program offers.

I look forward to co-leading our next Living Well with Chronic Conditions program this Fall. If you or someone you care for has a chronic condition, I encourage you to sign up for this 6-week program. It’s time to learn how to fish!
