Chronic Disease Self-Management Program - (CDSMP)

Nevada State Profile

The Evidence-Based Disease and Disability Prevention Program increases older adults' access to effective interventions that helps to reduce their risk of disease, injury, and disability. In 2010, the Recovery Act Chronic Disease Self-Management Program expanded state-led partnerships involving the aging and public health networks to implement evidence-based prevention programs at the community level that help older adults better manage their chronic diseases. This profile provides a brief synopsis of how each state and community organizations are delivering evidence-based prevention programs to meet the needs of the older adults and communities they serve.

The Recovery Act Chronic Disease Self-Management Program grant was awarded to the Aging & Disability Services Division (ADSD)

These programs are offered in collaboration with Nevada State Health Division.
