Making the leap from participation based to outcomes based should not be taken lightly.
Chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. They are pervasive, costly, and, in many cases, either preventable or manageable through the combined application of medical science and healthy lifestyles. Nearly fifty to eighty percent of all diseases are linked to the behavior choices we make.
