This program is designed to help people gain self-confidence with their ability to control their diabetes symptoms and learn how their health problems affect their lives. Participants make weekly action plans, share experiences and help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their diabetes self-management program.

  • Programs feature the following:
    • Small-group workshops — 12 to 16 participants

    • One session per week, for six weeks
  • People with different chronic health conditions attend together to:
    • Develop weekly action plans based on their needs
    • Share experiences
    • Help each other solve problems they encounter in creating and carrying out their self-management program
  • Sessions are highly interactive and led by professionals.
    • Sessions focus on building skills, sharing experiences, and offering support. All programs are led by a team of professional lay leaders. Lay leaders are people from the community who have experience in dealing with the same difficulties as those who are participating in the programs. They have received comprehensive in-person training to deliver the program content from a highly detailed manual.
