Partnering Up

I just found this resource on the web--The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease. It seems like a great hub of resources.

Here's a blurb:

Chronic diseases are creating a national health care crisis.

Chronic diseases – ongoing, generally incurable illnesses, such as asthma, arthritis, cancer, diabetes and heart disease – are the single greatest threat to our nation's health and to our health care system. In the United States, chronic diseases:

  • account for more than 75 cents of every dollar spent on health care in this country
  • are the #1 cause of death and disability
  • are the #1 driver of rising health care costs

You can download fact sheets, sign up for e-mail alerts, and much more.

Broadening the circle of support! I love it.
