The Sanford Center for Aging will be offering three workshops in Fall 2015 including Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) for people with any chronic disease; Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP) for those with diabetes; and Cancer: Thriving and Surviving (CTS) for those living with cancer. The workshops are offered once a week for six consecutive weeks.
