This Hearing hosted by the Vitality Institute Commission on the Prevention of Chronic Diseases in Working Age Americans will focus on technology-based innovations to advance prevention and health promotion in relation to major chronic disease risks. Guests include experts and leaders focused on technology to reduce disease risks including diet, tobacco control, mental health, physical activity, and medication adherence.
