My Life, My Health: A Chronic Disease Self Management Program

Millions of adults live with one or more chronic health conditions. Our programs will help people and their caregivers manage their symptoms, improve their quality of life, and reduce healthcare costs.

Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences, and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program. Physicians and other health professionals both at Stanford and in the community have reviewed all materials in the workshop.

We teach:

  • Techniques to deal with problems such as frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation.
  • Appropriate exercise for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Appropriate use of medications
  • Communicating effectively with family, friends, and health professionals
  • Nutrition
  • Decision making
  • How to evaluate new treatments
