Healthier Living with a Chronic Condition

Healthier Living is a six-week evidence-based program developed by Stanford University School of Medicine. The program focuses on helping you gain practical skills to become better informed and more involved in your care. Workshops start several times throughout the year. Each workshop runs for 2.5 hours each week over a period of 6 weeks.

The program is best suited for anyone with a chronic condition such as diabetes, arthritis, hypertension or high blood pressure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart disease, or ANY other chronic health condition. Participating in the sessions will not conflict with your existing medical care or treatment. We encourage and welcome your caregivers and family members to attend as well.
