Session Level 2 - Intermediate

Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability in the U.S. and around the world. Lifestyle is key to prevention and treatment of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other chronic conditions. Getting evidence-based lifestyle interventions widely implemented and sustained is very challenging. This presentation will discuss key components to successful wide scale implement and sustainment of proven interventions. These components will draw from the Knowledge to Action Framework, the Collective Impact Model, behavioral economics, and leadership principles. The base case discussed will be taking the National Diabetes Prevention Program from a big idea to reimbursement, but the information will apply to many other interventions and big ideas.
