Management of chronic disease and lifestyle medicine have long been underemphasized in the health care. I believe that technology and real time information from this site will help change the provider-patient into something wonderful; a true partnership which embraces both traditional and non-traditional pathways to highlight individualized care and emphasize overall wellness.
