Lifestyle Management Programs for Arthritis
CDC-Recommended and Promising Programs
The CDC Arthritis Program recommends evidence-based programs that are proven to improve the quality of life of people with arthritis. Recommended programs are those that have shown improvements in arthritis symptoms, such as pain or limitations in function, and that have some level of support for program oversight and organized, wide-scale delivery. Promising programs are programs with promising evaluation data and which are building the infrastructure to support program delivery across the country. Over time, CDC may elevate promising programs to a recommended status.
