Anew website has been published providing information and resources on fighting chronic diseases. As we all know, the biggest impact on quality of life and health care costs are the treatment of chronic diseases. The website called "Promising Practices" comments that:

America faces an important crossroads in health care. The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease, a diverse, national coalition of more than 100 partner organizations, is committed to raising awareness of policies and practices that save lives and reduce health costs through more effective prevention and management of chronic disease. We share common concerns about the incredible burden that chronic diseases place on families, the health care system, and the economy overall.

Though many understand the need for better ways to lower the risks of developing chronic illnesses and reduce the burden of illness on those already affected, they wonder how and where to begin. Innovators in schools, communities, workplaces, and the health care system are proving the value of addressing chronic disease in building a healthier America. Working together, we can develop innovative, common sense solutions to our current health care problems. We encourage you to use these resources to develop and support meaningful changes that will make a difference.

This appears to be a nice resource of patients and providers alike.
