Chronic Disease Self-Management Program

This Stanford-based program, a collaborative initiative between Riverside CEALH and the Peninsula Agency on Aging, is for any adult with a chronic health condition and/or their caregivers.

Chronic conditions include any health issue that presents barriers to everyday life, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Depression

The workshops include topics such as:

  • Pain management
  • Stress management
  • Physical activity
  • Communication techniques
  • Managing symptoms
  • Working with your healthcare team
  • Setting weekly goals
  • Effective problem-solving
  • Tips for eating well

There is no fee, just a commitment to 2½ hours, once a week, for six consecutive weeks.

All participants receive a copy of the companion book, Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, 3rd edition.
