We’re living longer, and with chronic and lifestyle-related diseases on the rise, our healthcare systems are struggling to increase access and quality of care while more effectively managing escalating costs.
At the same time, there’s a growing need for people to find new ways to take control of their personal health – including ways to be healthy, to live well, and to care for themselves and their families at home.
