David Hoffman, MS, Director, Bureau of Chronic Disease Services, NYS Department of Health

In the United States today, seven of ten deaths are attributable to chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and asthma. This program will showcase a new innovative model for addressing the prevention of these chronic diseases. The benefits of an integrated approach will be demonstrated through discussions with community stakeholders and highlights from selected interventions from the four Steps to Healthier NY communities (Broome, Chautauqua, Jefferson, and Rockland counties).
As a result of this program, participants will be able
- describe at least one intervention to prevent chronic disease that has been successful in the "Steps to Healthier NY" communities.
