The New Health Care Delivery System: Improving Health Outcomes through Reforming Health Care Delivery in America

On June 4, the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease hosted a Capitol Hill breakfast briefing - the second in a series of three - to discuss successful programs in health promotion, wellness, and disease prevention and management, and their impact on improving health outcomes and providing higher value health care.
