The project team will identify common elements of chronic disease systems for all public health programs, use quality improvement methods to improve program outcomes and enhance data collection systems for chronic disease surveillance. The grantee will train and engage internal and external chronic disease stakeholders in these efforts to prevent and control chronic disease conditions at the local community level.
