Learn how to navigate the healthcare system, understand and use your health insurance, talk with your healthcare providers, and access local resources available. Other topics include understanding and safeguarding medications, healthy eating, and staying healthy via exercise and self-care. The workshop is broken into 3 1-hour sessions.
Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) Workshop
This course is for individuals living with any chronic illness, e.g. heart disease, asthma, COPD, emphysema, cancer, anxiety, depression, and other conditions. Weekly meetings provide a space for individuals and family members to gather for support and learn techniques to self-manage and take control of their health and health conditions. We will meet for 2.5 hours once a week for six weeks (your health is worth it!).
Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) Workshop
This course provides the same supportive environment as the CDSMP workshop, with an emphasis on Type 2 Diabetes for individuals and their families and friends that support them. Weekly meetings provide a supportive space to learn about diabetes and how to manage the condition. Key themes are monitoring, healthy eating, reading labels, and exercise. Groups meet for 2.5 hours once a week for six weeks (your health is worth it!).
