Nevada Healthy Living is the Nevada Quality Technical Assistance Center which is coordinated by Dignity Health- St. Rose Dominican Hospitals. Our mission is to advance and support the delivery of evidence-based programs for Nevadans living with Chronic Conditions.
The fact is, 95% of care for an ongoing health condition like high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease takes place in our own homes and communities – not in doctor’s offices, hospitals, or other health care settings. But while we all “self-manage” our health, most of us can benefit from learning how we can do it even better.
Evidence Based Programs have proven to increase healthier outcomes and prevent diseases among older adults. These programs are interactive and engage the participants in demonstrating positive changes. The benefits of Evidence Based Programs include; improved quality of life, reduced pain, improved mental health, and many more.
