Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) have become the leading causes of death worldwide and China's increased NCD prevalence is of growing concern. Randall Stafford, Professor of Medicine in the Stanford Center for Research in Disease Prevention and SCPKU Faculty Fellow, led a symposium at the center last fall.  Entitled "Tackling China's Noncommunicable Diseases: Shared Origins, Costly Consequences, and the Need for Action," the symposium focused on China's NCD threats to public health and the urgent need for solutions.  The symposium summary was published earlier this month in the Chinese Medical Journal.
