Welcome. San Francisco County is pleased to offer programs for a Healthier Living. The Healthier Living Program workshops are designed to help you take small steps to make big life changes.

Developed by Stanford University School of Medicine, these evidence-based self-management workshops are a mixture of health education and peer support that have been implemented around the world for over 20 years. The workshops meet 2 ½ hours once a week for 6 consecutive weeks. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders and are held in various locations around San Francisco County. They are highly interactive and focus on support, sharing, skill development, and building confidence to manage chronic health conditions.

Are you a CDSMP/Healthier Living graduate? JOIN THE ONLINE COMMUNITY TODAY!
The San Francisco Department of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS), Office on Aging (OOA) and the National Council on Aging (NCOA) have developed an online community for CDSMP graduates. The goal is to provide a free online support group so that CDSMP graduates can continue to have access to tools that support self-management, practice what they learned in the workshop, participate in forums, get support from others and share resources to better manage their chronic health conditions.
Any CDSMP program (e.g., Healthier Living, Diabetes, Arthritis, etc.) graduate is welcome to join. To be part of this community please visit the Website:  http://healthyliving.sfconnected.net
