Personal Action Toward Health
PATH, which stands for Personal Action Toward Health, is a Chronic Disease Self-Management Program that was developed and tested by Stanford University to help people learn techniques and strategies for day to day management of chronic or long term health conditions. Having a chronic illness is not a choice, but how you deal with it can be, and that is what PATH is all about.
