Community Health Worker Training Programs
Chronic disease affects quality of life, has a huge economic impact, and increases the need for healthcare services. Better Choices, Better Health® SD is a community-led evidence-based program modeled after Stanford University’s chronic disease self-management program and is supported by the South Dakota Department of Health, SDSU Extension Services, and the South Dakota Department of Human Services. Once certified as a leader for BCBH, anyone with a desire to help people better manage their chronic conditions and lead healthier lives can lead a workshop. No healthcare or teaching experience is required. In fact, many leaders have a chronic disease themselves and have attended BCBH SD Workshops as a participant.
