Are you someone who enjoys helping others? The Steuben Rural Health Network & Chemung Valley Rural Health Network are seeking Peer Leaders to conduct the Living Healthy Steuben/Chemung workshops which help participants develop skills to better manage their chronic health conditions.
The Steuben Rural Health Network will be offering the Stanford University Chronic Disease Self-Management Peer Leader Training (Locally known as Living Healthy Steuben/Chemung) on April 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd from 9am to 3pm at the Institute for Human Services, Inc., 6666 County Road 11, Bath, NY 14810. Participants must attend all four days to be certified as a Peer Leader.
The Stanford University Chronic Disease Self-Management Program has been extensively evaluated, and provides evidence-based ways to help participants identify, strengthen, and use their own skills to better manage their chronic health condition. This training is provided free to anyone who is a resident of Steuben or Chemung Counties. Lunch and all course material will be provided free of charge. Individuals from other counties may attend but will be responsible for providing their own course material.
In exchange for this free training, we ask that newly trained peer leaders commit to teaching two 6-week workshops each year. It is necessary that each workshop have two peer leaders teaching the workshop class. Peer leaders should be comfortable with teaching and public speaking. No health care experience is necessary.
If you are interested in helping others in your community to live a more productive life, and to be able to continue doing the things they love, please consider becoming a peer leader. For more information on how to become a Living Healthy Steuben/Chemung Peer Leader, please call the Steuben Rural Health Network at 607-776-9467 ext. 226.
