1. Colorectal Cancer

1.1. Colorectal cancer screening beginning at age 50 is the most effective way to reduce a person’s risk of getting the disease. Despite the potentially life-saving effectiveness of this screening test, only 25% of adults age 50 to 64, and fewer than 40% of adults age 65 and older in the United States are up to date on colorectal cancer screening.

1.2. Among people who develop cancer, more than half will be alive in 5 years, yet cancer remains a leading cause of death in the United States, second only to heart disease

2. Heart Disease

2.1. Clinical preventive services to prevent cardiovascular disease alone could save tens of thousands of lives each year

3. Diabetes

3.1. 18.0 percent of adults aged 18 years and over with diagnosed diabetes had an A1c value greater than 9 percent in 2005–08

4. Influenza

4.1. People in the United States continue to get diseases that are vaccine preventable. Viral hepatitis, influenza, and tuberculosis (TB) remain among the leading causes of illness and death in the United States

4.2. Acute respiratory infections, including pneumonia and influenza, are the 8th leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for 56,000 deaths annually.

4.3. On average, influenza leads to more than 200,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths each year.

5. High Blood Pressure

5.1. 43.7 percent of adults aged 18 years and over with high blood pressure/hypertension had it under control in 2005–08.

5.2. Blood pressure screening and control is one of the most effective ways to prevent heart disease and stroke. Among people with diabetes, blood pressure control reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by 33 to 50%
