||The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Diabetes Translation (CDC/DDT), Division of Population Health and the Office of State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (CDC/OSTLTS), is pleased to offer this opportunity for up to 10 local health departments (LHDs) to develop the capacity to deliver effective chronic disease self-management programs (Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP)). In expanding the availability of the CDSMP to additional local jurisdictions we seek to expand the use of evidenced-based programs while enhancing the well-being and self-efficacy of persons with a chronic illness. The CDSMP is a six-week educational workshop for people with chronic conditions (e.g., arthritis, diabetes, lung and heart disease). Evidence-based, self-management education programs have been proven to significantly help people with chronic diseases. The CDSMP workshops are provided in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. Each workshop is led by a pair of trained leaders; it is recommended that at least one of the leaders is a person with chronic disease.
