Chronic Disease Management
Do you have Diabetes? Hypertension? Heart Disease? Arthritis?
The Chronic Disease Management Program is focused on improving the quality of life for our patients by improving access to health services, and by ensuring that necessary testing, referrals, and follow-up care occur. Behavioral factors such as nutrition, physical activity, obesity and tobacco use contribute to poor health outcomes and complications. Our staff will assist you in developing a plan to manage these factors and create self-management goals to help prevent complications and improve overall health and well being.
In addition to changing behavior factors, there are several ways that you can influence your course of chronic disease:
- Have periodic and regular screenings
- Control high blood pressure
- Engage regularly in physical activity
- Have annual dental examinations
- Eat a balanced low fat diet
- Quit tobacco use
The best person to control your chronic disease is YOU and the staff at SCHC is here to help you reach your goals for achievement.
