The Tomando Control de su Salud Self-Management Program is a workshop given two and a half hours, once a week, for six weeks, in community settings such as senior centers, churches, libraries and hospitals. This is the Spanish version of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program that was designed in Spanish for Spanish- speakers. Though similar to the English version, it was developed to be culturally appropriate.

People with different chronic health problems and who are Spanish speakers attend together. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals with chronic diseases themselves and who speak Spanish fluently. Classes are highly participative, where mutual support and success build the participants’ confidence in their ability to manage their health and maintain active and fulfilling lives.

Dates:   6 sessions (1 x week) – Mondays – October 3 to November 7, 2016

Time:   6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
