Adults with any chronic condition such as arthritis, heart disease, emphysema, depression, etc. benefit from creating personal action plans to achieve practical goals in managing their conditions.

Personal Action Toward Health-Diabetes (Diabetes PATH)

 Like PATH, Diabetes PATH is a 6-week 2½ hour workshop specifically designed for adults with Type 2 Diabetes. Diabetes PATH is a complimentary program to the diabetes education you receive from your health care provider. Diabetes PATH helps you learn techniques to take charge of your diabetes, better communicate with your healthcare team, and make weekly action plans to help you stay on track.

Personal Action Toward Health-Pain (Pain PATH)
