North Carolina's Initiative to Implement CDSMP


Living Healthy and Living Healthy with Diabetes are highly participatory workshops that take place once a week for 6 weeks. Each session is 2 hours long, and all workshops are facilitated by 2 trained leaders (many of whom are volunteers) who follow a detailed manual, so that each workshop is highly consistent.

These programs are not designed to help people to learn more about chronic conditions, but rather to learn the skills and tools to better manage chronic conditions. Participants will learn:

  • techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
  • appropriate management of medications
  • skills for effectively communicating with friends, family, and health care providers
  • healthy eating guidelines and exercise tips
  • how to make informed treatment decisions
  • and MUCH MORE!
