Targeting Metabesity 2021 gathers together stellar speakers from multiple disciplines, including science and medicine, behavioral science, government regulation, policy, reimbursement, industry and capital markets, patient advocacy, boomer and senior lifestyle, digital health and age-technology, and many others. This virtual conference takes place from 11 – 14th October 2021.
- Focusing on chronic (not just acute) diseases
- Shifting the spotlight beyond treatment to prevention
- Going beyond disease-by-disease treatments to prevention of multiple diseases by addressing common root causes
- Shifting from addressing diseases to extending healthy lifespan—healthspan
Targeting Metabesity 2021 is an ongoing call to action and a silo-busting conversation for tractable steps today to address major healthcare challenges!
Expanding evidence supports that the major chronic diseases—cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, obesity, cancer, and the aging process itself—have common metabolic roots and thus may be susceptible to shared solutions. Metabesity 2021 names this constellation of conditions.
