Steps to Healthier Living with Chronic Disease
In partnership with the Kansas City Regional Arthritis Center at Saint Luke’s Hospital and the University of Missouri Extension, the Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Disease Self-Management Program is being offered at the Thomas Eagleton Civic Center in Richmond, MO. The program was developed at Stanford University.
