Chronic Disease Prevention and Control

Image: Chronic Disease
Chronic diseases, including cancers, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and lung disease, are the leading causes of death and disability in Dane County, Wisconsin and the United States. To a large degree, these diseases can be prevented, delayed and controlled, allowing for healthier and longer lives.

Public Health Madison & Dane County works with community partners to prevent and reduce the impact of chronic diseases by working in several key areas: tobacco, childhood obesity, nutrition, physical activity, and access to health care.
