Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshop for patients and their caregivers begins April 3, Noon-2:30pm, at Stanford

Stanford’s Neuroscience Supportive Care Program is hosting a free 6-week workshop on Chronic Disease Self-Management beginning on April 3rd. The course is designed for patients dealing with a chronic disease (including Parkinson’s) and runs for 6 consecutive Tuesdays from Noon-2:30pm at the Stanford Neuroscience Health Center. Care partners are invited to participate, but only when accompanying their patients. Pre-registration is required.

The workshop was developed by Kate Lorig, RN, DrPH at Stanford and is currently offered in more than 25 countries.  Workshop participants (limited to no more than 15 attendees) will receive a free copy of the book, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions.”  During each 2 ½ hour session, the facilitators will introduce tools and techniques to help patients manage their health, so they can enjoy life more. Patients will learn how to eat healthy, manage stress, develop and maintain an exercise program, and communicate with family, friends and their health care team. This program is sponsored by Aging Adult Services at Stanford Health Care.

Pre-registration is required. To register, or if you have questions, please call 650.721.8500.
