Chronic Disease Prevention Action Plan

Chronic Disease Prevention Action Plan

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, asthma, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers such as lung cancer and prostate cancer are common in Jefferson County. Our data analysis showed that the prevalence of arthritis, asthma and diabetes in Jefferson county was higher than
the Oregon state rate for 2016-2017 (Oregon Public Health, 2018). Thus, we need an action plan to reduce the most common disease
incidence/prevalence and associated risk factors (particularly preventable ones).
