As teaching boards hung around the room, two instructors listened while 20 people sat around a table. One by one, each told their stories of dealing with chronic illness. Half of them said they were dealing with diabetes. Others had depression and anxiety, heart failure, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and chronic vertigo. As they spoke, the instructors offered their support.

Each of the “students” were there to learn how to manage their chronic diseases through the Living Healthy with Diabetes and Chronic Diseases class, which will be held at the Lodi Public Library for the next six weeks. The program was developed to assist people living with chronic illnesses by the Division of Family and Community Medicine in the School of Medicine at Stanford University.
