Are You a Fit for CPPP?

Ask yourself these questions and if the answer is yes to any of them then our program is right for you.

1.  Have I been diagnosed with a chronic disease?

2.  Am I confused about my diagnosis? Do I need help and don’t know where to get it?

3.  Have I missed doctor appointments because I had no way of getting there?

4.  Have I called 911 because I had no other way of seeing a physician?

5.  Have I failed to take my medicine because I didn’t have a way to get it and I didn’t understand what it was for?

6.  Am I not eating right because I don’t know what I am supposed to eat?

7.  Do I wish that I had someone to help me?
