(This amendment provides $535,000 the first year and $310,000 the second year from the general fund to expand the Chronic Disease Self Management Programs to the entire state through the local Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) and to expand existing programs. To date, 15 AAAs have programs that will be enhanced to assist more elderly Virginians to manage their chronic conditions and reduce unnecessary Emergency Department trips while providing the individual's quality of life. Funding will provide training for master trainers, coaches and volunteers to work with more than 3,000 additional elderly Virginians in completing the program. Funding in the second year will include an evaluative component through an independent university-based review.)
