Free self-management program offered to people with chronic illness

A free, online self-management course is being offered to people with chronic health conditions living in California and six other states. The National Council of Aging recently announced the debut of its course, which is based on the Stanford-developed Chronic Disease Self Management Program.

The six-week program provides nutrition and exercise information; offers tips on dealing with pain, fatigue and stress; and discusses ways to more effectively talk with health professionals and family members. People in California, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Oregon can go to the Better Choices, Better Health website to sign up.
