Our programs, including the flagship Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP), have enhanced the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world.  Our small group workshops for people with chronic disease and their caregivers, are offered in in person in community settings, virtually via Zoom or other platform, and online. The programs are facilitated by Leaders with their own health challenges. Our programs are highly interactive, focusing on building skills, sharing experiences, and support.

Our published books, consumer articles and peer-reviewed journal articles are extensive. We have served as technical consultants both nationally and internationally.  Go to Bibliography
