Wellness Programs


Wellness happens at many places in our life - throughout our community, in our schools and workplaces, and even at our places of worship.  As part of Healthy Dutchess, we encourage you to participate in our county-wide initiative to make Dutchess County the healthiest county in the United States.


Another way you can manage your health is to take advantage of the many self-management programs offered in our community.  Self management programs are six-session workshops designed to help individuals (or their caregivers) learn proven techniques and skills for the day-to-day management of any type of ongoing health condition.  The Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) is particularly useful for those with ongoing health condition such as high blood pressure, depression, arthritis, asthma, or pain. The Diabetes Self-Management Program is designed for people living with Type 2 diabetes or their caregivers.
