    • Wendy O'Donnell is an Arizona native who finished her undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Arizona. She has been working in various roles in public health for over 10 years, mostly in health education. She has experience in educating on infectious diseases, chronic diseases, stages of change, and immunization. She became the Director of the Arizona Living Well Institute at Empowerment Systems in October, 2016. She strongly supports the mission of advancing evidence-based chronic disease self-management education in Arizona. 
    • Webinar Description: The Arizona Living Well Institute is the state-wide hub for Chronic Disease Self-Management Education (CDSME) Healthy Living programs. These programs are evidence-based workshops that give people the knowledge, confidence, and motivation needed to manage the challenges of living with chronic conditions and live an overall healthier life. One of the programs offered is Healthy Living with Chronic Pain (CPSMP). In addition to self-management skills such as healthy eating, problem solving, and dealing with difficult emotions, Healthy Living with Chronic Pain (CPSMP) specifically addresses addiction, proper use of pain medication, and proper use of opioids. This program is a useful tool in reducing opioid misuse and abuse. When used in conjunction with medication assisted treatment (MAT) programs, it can increase self-confidence and empower participants to take an active role in their lives.
