Event Details

Background

Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are responsible for seven of every 10 deaths among Americans each year and account for 75% of the nation’s health spending.1 Many of these chronic conditions can be prevented, delayed, or caught and treated early when patients work closely with their primary care providers. Greater use of proven clinical preventive services in the United States could avert the loss of millions of life-years and result in cost savings for individuals and families.2
