Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions


The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is an evidence-based six-week program for individuals living with one or more chronic conditions and their caregivers. This class is designed to address the complex array of health issues and self-management behaviors that cut across different chronic illnesses such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression, heart disease, diabetes and more. The goal is to help individuals better manage their symptoms by learning important self-management skills and techniques such as action planning, healthy eating and communicating with their healthcare team.
