CDSMP helps adults of all ages and caregivers manage the symptoms of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, depression, asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, and any other physical or mental health conditions. This evidence-based program, developed by Stanford University, is held weekly for 2 ½ hours for six weeks in person or virtually. Two trained leaders facilitate the workshops.
