Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management

 

According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, three in five Canadians over the age of 20 live with a chronic illness and four in five are at risk. In Canada, 67 per cent of all deaths each year are caused by four major chronic conditions: cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and chronic respiratory disease.

The Faculty of Medicine Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management (CCDPM) serves as a provincial leader for research excellence, knowledge translation and exchange in the urgent research field of chronic diseases.
