Q&A: She teaches people with serious diseases how to help themselves

The Jewish News of Northern California interviewed our author Kate Lorig: 

Q&A: She teaches people with serious diseases how to help themselves

 

  • Excerpt: 

    J: It seems as if the self-management programs have grown organically from the first one you created at Stanford. What is the key to their success?

    Kate Lorig: People that attend like it and feel that they benefit, and we have pretty solid scientific evidence that these programs actually help people … and reduce health care costs. The programs can be given where people work and play in the community — from senior centers to park and recreation facilities.

 

Lorig and her co-authors have just published the new edition of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions. Learn about the changes to the new edition
