Living with Chronic Disease
A few times each year, Stay Healthy Seniors offers a chronic disease self-management program developed by the Stanford University Patient Education Research Center. The “Living Healthy” classes are taught by an instructor who is living with a chronic disease. Classes meet for 2.5 hours each week for six weeks. A study conducted by Stanford shows that program participants experience improved health and fewer hospital admissions. For more information, call UHS Stay Healthy at (607) 763-6383.
