Chronic Disease Partners of Maine

Chronic Disease Partners of Maine is a statewide coalition that focuses on the common strategies for prevention, early detection and treatment of chronic disease through communication, public policy and public education. It was established in August 2008 as a vehicle for promoting collaboration across chronic illness and prevention efforts in Maine, and is supported by the voluntary efforts of its member organizations. CDPM was spearheaded by the Maine Cardiovascular Health Council in recognition of several duplicative disease specific efforts as a means to improve the coordination and prevention of chronic disease activities in Maine. They have released “Maine Pathway to Health”, a patient education and self-management tool that can be used across healthcare and community settings to promote consistent, action-oriented messaging for prevention of chronic disease.
