Dec. 7 at 1:00 pm ET | Achieving More Person-Centered Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Diseases

Life expectancy in the US declined by 1.5 years from 2019 to 2020 in the largest 1-year drop since World War II. While COVID-19 caused 74 percent of the decline, chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and kidney disease take a heavy toll. Although largely preventable, as leading causes of death and disability chronic diseases are the main drivers of US health expenditures. Strategies to reduce or eliminate chronic diseases are imperative. "Whole-person-centered care" is an integrated approach to improve care coordination, well-being, and health outcomes. Experts will review person-centered care-delivery models and the opportunities and challenges they present in reshaping the management of chronic diseases.
