Calaveras Public Health & Health Care District Partner for Prevention

Calaveras Public Health Services has announced approval of a $20,000 funding contract from the Mark Twain Health Care District to continue providing Healthier Living Chronic Disease Self-Management Workshops. The workshop model was developed by Stanford University to build the skills needed to manage chronic or ongoing health conditions. The workshop leaders are Community Health Workers trained and certified to conduct the workshops. “The strength of our workshops is that we have identified non-medical people from the community who also have chronic conditions and receive training to conduct the workshops,” stated Dr. Dean Kelaita, Calaveras Health Officer. “They understand the challenges of managing a health problem that is ongoing,” Kelaita added. The workshops are not specific to a medical condition. The self-management skills can apply to any ongoing health problem like diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, high cholesterol, cancer, or arthritis. The workshops are currently funded through the Public Health Institute through a federal Community Transformation Grant that will end in September 2014. The new funding will prevent a gap in workshop services that are offered at no-cost to adults in the County.

Dr. Kelaita continued, “Public Health is working with local community members to prevent chronic disease and manage conditions by teaching them the skills to follow the physician’s care plan. We can decrease the burden of disease and maintain or improve the quality of life for many residents.” Public Health Services has partnered with many community groups and residents to improve the health of the community through the Community Transformation Grant. The partnership with the Mark Twain Health Care District is a new and important one.

“We share similar goals and a vision for the health of the people in Calaveras County,” stated Dr. Kelaita. This new relationship brings together two complementary areas of health that far exceed the monetary benefit from the funding. We will continue to hear the community stories that document the challenges of living with chronic conditions through the Community Health Workers and their provision of services as we build the capacity for individuals to manage their health. "We are very pleased to partner with the Calaveras Public Health Services for support of the chronic disease management program," stated Lin Reed, President of the Mark Twain Health Care District.

For more information or to register for an upcoming Self-Management Workshop, call Calaveras Public Health Services at 209-754-6460.

Can you prevent 1200 undocumented illegals from coming to our county ? Get moving because they are on their way.
