Welcome to Health Management and Education!
Our goal is to provide you with helpful information that empowers you to better manage your health. It is our belief that the more you know, the better you can manage the everyday challenges you encounter with your chronic condition(s).
Because our team recognizes the central role you have in managing your day in, day out health care, we provide two approaches to support and empower you:
• Care Management and Coordination: To help you manage your chronic condition(s) during times of challenge, our experienced care manager team offers telephonic support and guidance as you transition between emergency or hospital care, your primary care office, and your home. They offer you support and coaching as you care for yourself at home.
• Self-Management Education: Our team of educators offers interactive health classes and individual appointments aimed at helping you develop specific self-management skills, improve your chronic condition(s), and optimize your overall health status.
We welcome you to browse through our site where you can learn about chronic conditions, view our classes and/or contact us for more information.
