Prioritize Control Nationally: Increase awareness of health risks, recognize economic burden, and eliminate disparities. Cultivate Community Supports: Promote physical activity opportunities, promote health food opportunities, and connect to lifestyle change resources. Optimize Patient Care: Use standardized treatment approaches, promote team-based care, empower and equip patients, and recognize and reward clinicians.
