Atlanta Summit celebrates CDC's work,
reaffirms commitment to public health
Michael Milken and Tom Frieden at the Atlanta SummitMore than 200 participants – members of Congress, industry leaders, foundation heads, major philanthropists, distinguished scientists and university presidents – convened at the headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a first-of-its-kind event hosted by the Milken Institute and the CDC Foundation. Building on the Celebration of Science initiative launched in 2012, the Summit's focus was to reaffirm America's commitment to public health.

"Checkup Time" looks anew at America's
chronic diseases and finds mixed results
Checkup TimeOur latest report, "Checkup Time," depicts the actual economic burden associated with five leading chronic diseases. The report updates our groundbreaking 2007 report, "An Unhealthy America," which has served as a source of information for journalists and policymakers, "Checkup Time" finds that chronic diseases have cost the nation more than we originally forecast, driven by obesity. The good news: Treatment expenditures per patient and heart disease prevalence are lower than the gloomiest projections in 2007.
