Chronic diseases account for roughly 47% of all deaths in the United States -a health care burden that could be greatly reduced with education and behavior modification.
The statistics are staggering and it says one thing: We need better resources and more information to help make better, healthier choices.
In response to these challenges, Monmouth Medical Center, an RWJBarnabas Health affiliate, has taken immediate action. This includes:
- Expanding outreach programs beyond the hospital walls
- Promoting early detection and prevention of disease
- Providing free educational health and wellness programs and services
- Advocating living a happier, healthier, more balanced life.
As part of RWJBarnabas Health, Monmouth Medical Center is a leader in designing unparalleled new ways for delivering health care. It is with this vision that they partnered to provide WEforum, A Women’s Health and Wellness Conference to be held on April 20, 2016 at the Ocean Place Resort and Spa in Long Branch.
All proceeds from WEforum’s Women’s Health and Wellness Conference 2016 will go towards the development of free educational health and wellness programs accessible to the entire community. Programs include Health and Wellness lectures, programs, activities and support groups developed by Monmouth Medical Center.
