Cost of Chronic Disease in Vermont
Chronic diseases affect the quality of life for Vermonters as well as Vermont’s economic future.
Chronic diseases are projected to cost Vermont over $2 billion in health care costs this year alone.
Most chronic disease deaths are from the four diseases included in 3-4-50. The same three behaviors, lack of physical activity, poor diet, and tobacco use, can also make other chronic diseases worse including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and liver disease.
