Healthy U leadership training begins Feb. 17
Have you learned to manage a chronic illness? Do you want to help others improve their quality of life?
Healthy-U needs people like you!
The Healthy-U Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) needs people like you to help others improve their quality of life and save on health care expenses. You’ll receive specialized training to help adults and/or their caregivers learn to manage the symptoms associated with a variety of chronic illnesses.
The free training will be held February 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 155 Tri County Parkway, Springdale, OH 45246 (next door to Council on Aging’s offices).
Once your training is complete, it is expected that you will: 1) lead two or more six-week courses in accordance with program guidelines and 2) maintain weekly attendance records and participant information to be turned in upon completion of the program.
Space is limited for the training. For more information or to register, contact Elaine Hordes at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (513) 226-1585.
Video showcases CDSMP success
UNITE HERE HEALTH created a new video that shows the success of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) for a diverse group of union members with chronic conditions. CDSMP workshops, which are offered throughout the U.S., have been proven to help older adults better manage their chronic conditions, improve their quality of life, and lower their health care costs.
