Better Choices, Better Health® Workshop

About

Live Well, the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), developed by Stanford University’s Patient Education Research Center, is a 6-week workshop that takes place once a week for 2 hours. It is facilitated by two trained peer leaders. The workshop teaches the skills needed in the day-to-day management of chronic health activities and gives participants the motivation and confidence that is required to manage health challenges. Researchers have found that CDSMP participants have fewer hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

Volunteers typically facilitate the workshop at local senior centers or independent living facilities. Schedules vary based on presentation needs, but typically held between 10am to 2pm during the weekday.
