About this conference
Louisiana is consistently ranked as one of the least healthy states in America, with high rates of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses that contribute to some of the highest medical costs in the country. The state provides a window into the challenges facing healthcare systems across America, where increasing rates of chronic disease are driving escalating costs-but also are stimulating new solutions.
Join us for a town hall event, where we will convene doctors, business leaders, researchers, community organizers, patient advocates, health officials and others, to discuss strategies to promote better health, improve patient outcomes, and rein in costs.
