New Mexico State University’s Doña Ana County Cooperative Extension Service will provide a free 6-week Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) initiating on the day of April 11.
Established and tested by Stanford University, the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program has been proven to make better health and quality of life for people with one or more chronic health conditions.
The CDSMP assists adults with chronic health conditions learn how to handle and improve their health. Interactive workshop sessions focus on issues that are common to people dealing with conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, pain, depression, asthma, or high blood pressure.
Throughout the 6 weeks, participants concentrate on building skills to handle their conditions by sharing experiences and giving mutual support. Topics involve pain management, nutrition, exercise, medication use, emotions and communicating with doctors.
The program will start with an orientation at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 4, followed by weekly sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. each Tuesday, April 11 through May 16, at the Cooperative Extension Service Office, 1170 N. Solano in Las Cruces.
To register for this free workshop or for further information about the CDSMP, call 505-850-0176 or the Doña Ana County Cooperative Extension Service at 575-525-6649. Family, friends and caregivers are also welcome to attend.
The CDSMP is promoted and supported by the New Mexico Department of Health Diabetes Prevention and Control Program and is being given in partnership with New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service.
