Heart of New Ulm to be in spotlight at Prevention Conference


[New Ulm Journal, April 07, 2013] Who wants to die early or live with a chronic illness? Yet, 95 percent of the population lives with an identifiable risk factor, and the U.S. spends $2.5 trillion on health care 70 percent of which is spent on lifestyle-related disease.

For people who are committed to changing that reality, Minneapolis will be the place to be in April. Some of the nation's top thinkers and experts in health promotion and well-being will be there, and Minnesotans will show how communities have connected successfully to transform everyone's health.

A new national conference, Connecting to Transform Communities: Stakeholders in Health & Wellness, is being hosted by the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation and Allina Health.
