The Baltimore City Health Department Division of Aging and CARE Services is host to “Living Well”
“Living Well” is a series of evidence based workshops; licensed through Stanford University that includes but is not limited to the:
Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) and Diabetes Self-Management Program (DSMP).
These workshops are delivered in the community by trained peer leaders; over a 6 week period for 2.5 hours per day once a week.
If you are interested in being trained as a certified peer leader in Chronic Disease Self- Management and you meet the qualifications, this can be a great opportunity for you to facilitate a Living Well workshop in the community. Being a peer leader offers you an opportunity to help others just like you through support, creation of individual actions plans; while learning other techniques to improve healthy living by managing chronic conditions.
Volunteers/Peer Leaders also receive a $150.00 stipend for all workshops they complete.
