It’s frightening to be told you have heart failure. But, you can learn skills to better manage your condition while also connecting with others who have the same condition.

Waldo County General Hospital will hold another round of “The Beat Goes On,” beginning April 26 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. The course is a series of six free classes. The classes are:

  • Thursday, May 3: Eating Well with Heart Failure: Get the Low Down on Salt, led by Jen Nelson, Registered Dietitian.
  • Thursday. May 10: Ahhh: Managing the Stress of Heart Failure, led by Jo-Ann Whiting, RN.
  • Thursday, May 17: Pump it up: Exercising with Heart Failure, led by Teri Blackadar, RN.
  • Thursday, May 24: Pills and Me: Understanding the World of Heart Failure, led by Nancy Nystrom, Ph.D., RPh.

The classes will be held in the second-floor conference room in the new green-roofed building across the street from the hospital.
