Workshop Participant Shared Appreciation for CDSME
Chronic Disease Self-Management Education workshop participants are encouraged to share their thoughts about the program with Stanford Patient Education Research Center, their Health Care Provider, and CDSME Coordinator Joyce Nussbaum.
Recently Joyce received a letter of thanks from a participant who stated that her neighbor invited her to attend the workshop and that “(t)he class gave me an opportunity to meet others like myself with some of the same problems, who also offered sensible solutions to some of the questions.”
“It was fun. Because of this class I have visited my doctor, who diagnosed my problems and I am now taking physical therapy to restore my confidence in walking without fear of falling… My attitude and outlook are positive, I cannot say enough about the benefits of this book and the class… thank you for being involved in the ‘care and feeding’ of my generation, I am 81 years old, and look forward to each new day.”
