Future Directions for the CDS

With funded states and other partners, CDC aims to

Create a nationwide program to improve the quality of life for people affected by arthritis.

Build on expert recommendations to move state programs from building capacity to implementing programs on a wider scale. CDC will focus on providing effective programs through groups that already work with people with arthritis. Examples include networks of aging services agencies, cooperative extension programs, large health care systems, and large employers.

Identify model dissemination efforts that can be replicated in other states, as well as models for working with partners at state, regional, and national levels.

Develop innovative interventions that meet the needs of diverse populations.

Work collaboratively with other chronic disease programs at federal and state levels.
