Steps to Healthier Living: Living Well with Chronic Conditions

Steps to Healthier Living: Living Well with Chronic Conditions


April 5, 2022

STEPS TO HEALTHIER LIVING

Steps to Healthier Living (also known as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program) helps adults of all ages and caregivers manage the symptoms of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and any other physical and mental health conditions. This evidence-based program, developed by Stanford University, is held weekly for 2 ½ hours for six weeks at community-based locations in participating counties and also virtually throughout the state.

The workshop sessions are taught by trained leaders in the community; many of whom also have chronic conditions. This creates an environment of mutual support, which builds participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and lead active lives.

This workshop meets via zoom on Tuesdays from noon-2:30 p.m., beginning April 5-May 17.
