Coming Soon: Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) Workshops

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. The Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) Program contains evidence-based workshops developed by Stanford University designed to help people gain confidence in their ability to manage their chronic health conditions. There is evidence to suggest that those who enroll in CDSME are able to maintain many of their health and behavioral or lifestyle improvements overtime. CDSME is a 6-week, 2.5-hour workshop facilitated by two trained leaders. Participants will learn different tools to help manage their chronic health conditions more effectively. Some of the tools discussed in the workshop include dietary management, exercise, problem solving, decision making, communication and stress management.

Workshops offered: Chronic Disease Self-Management, Chronic Pain Self-Management, Diabetes Self-Management, Matter of Balance (Fall Prevention), Powerful Tools for Caregivers.
