Better Choices, Better Health

Better Choices, Better HealthThe Better Choices, Better Health program (also known as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, or CDSMP) is a free workshop for adults 60 years of age and older that is given two and half hours
once a week, for six weeks.

The workshop is offered in a community setting, such as a senior center, church, library or hospital, and provides support for continuing normal daily activities and dealing with the emotions brought about by chronic health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, heart disease and stroke, among others.

The Better Choices, Better Health program aims to help its participants feel better, regain control of their health and start doing the things they want to do.
