Cancer and Chronic Disease Prevention

In Louisville we have some alarming health statistics:
•1 in 3 adults in Louisville are overweight or obese.  This means they have an increased risk for high blood pressure, diabetes, some cancers, arthritis/joint pain
•25% of Louisville Metro adults still use tobacco products which increases their risk for lung disease, cancer, heart attack and stroke, and poor wound healing
•Louisville Metro’s rate of deaths for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and stroke are higher than the death rates for Kentucky and the US

 
Our Healthy Louisville 2020 shared goals are to decrease the incidence and death rates for all cancers in Louisville Metro and to prevent, detect and reduce the risk factors that cause diabetes coronary heart disease and stroke among our residents.
