Chronic Diseases are diseases of long duration and generally slow progression.
Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, are by far the leading cause of death in the world, representing 60% of all deaths. Out of the 35 million people who died from chronic disease in 2005, half were under 70 and half were women.
These diseases also cause major limitations in daily living for almost 1 out of 10 Americans or about 25 million people. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable.
Adopting healthy behaviors such as eating nutritious foods, being physically active and avoiding Tobacco use can prevent or control the devastating effects of these diseases.
We provide education and presentations on chronic disease such as breast health, cervical and colorectal cancer, diabetes, heart and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as well as proper nutrition to groups, organizations and the business community.
