Chronic Disease Management

We believe that access to proper nutrition, that is balanced and culturally appropriate, is a basic human right. We strive to alleviate barriers to accessing health care services and recognize the important role health plays physically, mentally, and financially.

Chronic Disease Self-Management (CDSMP) is an evidence-based program originally developed at Stanford University.  The program consists of a small workgroup of people who meet for six weeks, once a week for two hours. The group can either meet in-person, virtually, or in a hybrid format. The sessions are highly interactive, focusing on building skills, sharing experiences, and supporting each other.  All programs are led by a team of trained leaders.  

During the six-week workshop, participants will learn tools to: 

  • Improve health and mobility 
  • Manage chronic diseases (i.e., diabetes, COPD, depression, high blood pressure…etc.) 
  • Reduce stress and cope with pain 
  • Create action plans to improve overall health 
  • Develop better communication with family, friends, and your healthcare team 
  • Increase healthier food choices
