We are pleased to extend a special invitation for you to be our guest at a live* event produced by NEJM Catalyst and hosted by the Duke Clinical Research Institute and the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy: Patient Behavior Change: Building Blocks for Success. This event, which will be streamed live to an international audience, will feature a phenomenal slate of healthcare leaders and researchers who will share insights on the keys to creating and sustaining behavior change for health.

Event Chair: Kevin Volpp, MD, PhD | University of Pennsylvania | NEJM Catalyst Patient Engagement Theme Leader

"Many patients live in challenging social or economic circumstances and don't prioritize their future health, clinicians aren't well-trained to help patients engage in risk reduction behavior, and the healthcare system tends to focus on treating disease and not preventing it. There is much to learn about how to make it easier for patients to engage in healthy behavior at higher rates."

Event Sessions:
- Creating Behavior Change: How Clinicians Should Engage Patients
- Scaling Behavior Change: Community-based Strategies
- Sustaining Behavior Change: Making It Effortless
