Chronic Disease Prevention

Chronic diseases – such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems in the U.S. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly of all health problems, they are also among the most preventable.

CAI works to promote proven social, environmental, policy, and systems approaches that support healthy living for individuals, families and communities. CAI implements strategies that facilitate and support individual responsibility and behavior change at schools, and workplaces, and in faith- based community, and medical settings. We employ innovative peer led interventions to build bridges between health care services and populations in need. CAI builds the capacity of organizations to work across the following key areas -- facilitation and support of individual responsibility and behavior change, policy and environmental change, health equity, research translation, health care delivery design, enhancing the coordination of care and workforce development -- to put to work the power of prevention.
