The program provides tools for living a healthy life with chronic health conditions,including arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, COPD,and other conditions that affect your daily life.The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program was developed at Stanford University in 1996. This is a workshop for adults that is held oncea week for six weeks for two and half hours. The workshop is scheduled tobe held this fall at:

Mondays: September 17-October 22, 2018, 1:00-3:30pm
The workshop sessions are led by two trained and certified PeerLeaders, many of whom also have chronic health conditions. This creates an environment of mutual support, which builds participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and lead active lives.
In a Stanford study, people who participated in the program demonstrated significant improvements in exercise, cognitive symptom management, communication with physicians, self-reported general health, health distress, fatigue, disability, and social/role activities limitations. They also spent fewer days in the hospital and there was also a trend toward fewer outpatient visits and hospitalizations. For more information, visit www.alleghenybetterhealth.org.
