A website designed to help facilitate connections, conversations, and collaborations among experts, leaders, innovators from a variety of sectors, and anyone genuinely concerned with chronic disease prevention and control. The name represents the key message: There are three risk factors (tobacco use, poor diet, including the harmful use of alcohol, and lack of physical activity) that contribute to four chronic diseases (heart disease, type 2 diabetes, lung disease and some cancers) which, in turn, contribute to more than 50% of preventable deaths in the world.
