Living Well workshops are available in many counties in Oregon, and some counties offer Tomando Control de su Salud, the Spanish-language version of Living Well. Some counties also offer the Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP) for people living with HIV/AIDS.
In addition to these programs, the workshop calendar (below) provides a listing of other Stanford chronic disease self-management programs that are available in some communities.
