Chronic Disease Management

A chronic disease constitutes a medical condition that will always be present in a person’s life. Chronic diseases can range from autoimmune disorders, to heart problems, to chronic pain. Chronic diseases are better managed when a person is well-educated on their own chronic disease, so that they may conduct their lives in a way that will not worsen their chronic condition.
