You may be aware of recent efforts to build capacity for the delivery of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) throughout NYS. More than 5,000 New York State residents from Buffalo to NYC have participated in this highly acclaimed evidence-based program during the past 18 months and there are currently trainers for the CDSMP in 50% of NYS Counties. We are hoping you would like to learn more about these efforts, help us to plan for sustainability of the CDSMP and hear both the State and National perspectives on this program and its potential.
To that end, you are cordially invited to attend Self-Management for Active Health, a state-wide summit co-sponsored by the Albany Guardian Society, the NYS Evidence-Based Health Programs Quality & Technical Assistance Center at the University at Albany, NYS Office for the Aging, and NYS Department of Health. This summit is dedicated to highlighting the impact of the collaborative efforts around the dissemination of the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP). As we move forward, we are looking for your valued input into how this and other high quality evidence-based programs will be sustained throughout the state.
