At the Liu Foundation, we know that chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes can have a big impact on people’s lives. In fact, they affect 60% of Americans and cost our country a lot of money
– over 80% of our total healthcare costs!
But there is good news. Recent studies
have shown that following healthy habits like not smoking, exercising regularly, eating well, and controlling your weight can lead to a longer, healthier life. And it’s not just physical habits that matter – things like getting enough rest, staying social, and managing your finances can also make a difference.
That’s why the Liu Foundation has created the LIU App
and Video series
. These resources promote evidence-based habits that can help prevent chronic disease and improve your overall health. The app is based on the habits recommended by Harvard and Stanford, and it helps you track your progress towards a healthier lifestyle.
