Chronic health conditions are costly representing 84 percent of the US annual healthcare expenditures according to the Centers for Disease Control.

This unprecedented growth in the older population together with the financial burden of chronic health conditions creates the perfect health care storm. Addressing chronic conditions requires strategies that go beyond the traditional model of getting care. Stanford University School of Medicine developed the CDSME, the gold-standard strategy that empowers individuals with chronic health conditions to manage their health and improve the quality of their lives.

There is no charge for the workshop and the course handbook. Family members, friends and caregivers are encouraged to enroll. To enroll or for more information call 425-265-2283.
