2015 AMCP Foundation Symposium
The Fifth Annual AMCP Foundation Symposium convened experts from the public and private sector on October 26, prior to AMCP Nexus 2015 in Orlando, FL, on innovative ways to take on the chronic disease challenge through prevention.
The program started with the examination of the the landmark report A Prevention Prescription for Improving Health and Health Care in America, which assessed the growing impact of chronic disease treatment on our economy and the health care delivery system. Speakers addressed the importance of medication adherence as it relates to obesity, heart disease, and other chronic diseases. They also examined the historical perspective of treatment management; reviewed what has worked, what has not, and what is needed; and investigate barriers such as plan design, care coordination, and the patient's role in chronic disease care.
The AMCP Foundation would like to express sincere appreciation to our program supporters - Amgen, Inc., Eisai, Merck & Co., and Novo Nordisk, Inc. - for their grant support.
