Welcome to Living Well
A Chronic Disease Self-Management Program
"Living Well" is Maryland's name for a 6-week Stanford University developed Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. It provides adults ages 18 and older and/or their caregivers with the strategies to confidently take charge of their health. Participants learn valuable skills including how to practice good nutrition and relaxation techniques, exercise properly, and effectively communicate with health care providers. The 6-week workshops are held weekly for 2 ½ hours, and are led by trained leaders who are facing similar medical concerns. By learning how to cope with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and high blood pressure, workshop attendees are able to live happily and healthily and become more interactive with their wellness management.
