Love to teach? Instructors needed for community Chronic Disease Management Workshops
Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities, in partnership with AAMC, is seeking volunteers to instruct Stanford University’s Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. This six week (2.5 hours per week) workshop will be taught at various locations throughout Anne Arundel County, including AAMC, senior centers, community centers, churches and libraries.
The program teaches participants how to manage their chronic disease(s) through healthy eating, exercise, stress reduction and other self-management skills.
This evidence-based program has been found to improve participants overall health status (self-reported health, fatigue, disability, social/role activities, and health distress), and decreased their days in the hospital.
The Department of Aging will train volunteers to lead this community based Chronic Disease Management Program over a four day training period. Volunteers must be able to attend all four days of training to become a certified program instructor.
Training will be held at the Department of Aging, Riva Road, Annapolis, MD on the following days:Thursday, June 5 Friday, June 6 Thursday, June 12 Friday, June 13
To register for the training, visit AAMC’s Community Service Initiative’s sign up page, then contact Pam Toomey at the Department of Aging at 410-222-4366, ext 3081 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
