Epidemic of Chronic Disease

If not ourselves, we all have family or friends who have a chronic disease. Chronic diseases are the leading causes of disability and death and acount for 90% of U.S. health care expenditures. Join us as we explore Epidemic of Chronic Disease: Infinite Causes with Finite Disease Expressions.

Dr. Greg Natello will share an introductory overview of current thinking for causes driving our modern-day epidemic of Chronic Diseases, and insights into how you can get and stay as healthy as possible, for yourself and those you care about.

Dr. Natello is a father, Cleveland Clinic and UAB educated Internist and cardiologist respectively, and functional medicine certified practitioner. His journey as a physician, and patient himself, moved him from placing stents in arteries to getting to the root causes driving our modern-day epidemic of chronic diseases. He advocates for advancing our sickcare system to actual ‘healthcare’ and empowering patients, and us all, to transform from feeling unwell to creating health and wellness, feel well and function better, to live our Best Lives possible, for ourselves and those we care about.
