2021 BCBH-SD Virtual Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Lay Leader Training

Friday, September 24 - Thursday, September 30

South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension is offering a virtual Better Choices, Better Health SD Chronic Disease Self-Management Program Lay Leader Training on Aug. 19 - Sept. 30 from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. CDT.

Becoming a BCBH-SD lay leader and facilitating workshops is an excellent opportunity to stay on track with your own health as you teach valuable self-management skills to people with chronic conditions. No teaching experience or health care background is necessary to become a BCBH-SD lay leader. In fact, research shows that the best facilitators are those who are living with chronic conditions.
