Leveraging Access and Trust to Prevent Chronic Disease Through Personalized Care

Dr. Eva Chalas' presidential initiative focused on increasing awareness of the obstetrician-gynecologist's critical role in providing preventive and medically appropriate care.

About the Initiative

Obstetrician-gynecologists play an essential role in women’s health care. Most patients establish relationships with their obstetrician-gynecologist early in their adult life and mainly rely on them to provide primary and preventative care. Obstetrician-gynecologists are uniquely positioned to identify gaps in care through different stages of life, and to create and implement solutions to ensure comprehensive, individualized care for their patients.

Dr. Eva Chalas' presidential initiative focused on increasing awareness of the obstetrician-gynecologist's critical role in providing preventive and medically appropriate care. The task force identified six priority areas of preventative care: obesity, cardiovascular disease, prepregnancy care, diabetes, modifiable risk factors for cancer prevention, and genetic risk factors for cancer prevention or early detection. 

See the webinars below for detailed information on tools and resources for addressing these six areas of preventive care with your patients.
