Developed by the Stanford School of Medicine, Healthy U is designed to help anyone over the age of 18 play an active and productive role in their own health management. Anyone is welcome to participate; those who suffer from one or more chronic health conditions will find Healthy U particularly useful. Caregivers and friends of those who would benefit from health self-management also make great participants.

- Techniques to deal with problems like frustration, fatigue, pain and isolation
- Appropriate exercises for maintaining and improving strength, flexibility and endurance
- Appropriate use of medications
- Communicating effectively with family, friends and health professionals
