HEALTHY U: Chronic Disease is a small group program that helps adults of any age gain confidence in their ability to manage symptoms and understand how their health problems affect their lives.
Individuals participate in an interactive workshop 2 1/2 hours a week for six weeks. Each workshop is facilitated by a pair of leaders, one or both of whom live with a chronic disease themselves. HEALTHY U was developed by researchers at Stanford University, and is effective in improving health outcomes and reducing health care costs.
This program is supported by the HEALTHY U Ohio initiative.
