NOW Health Network and Windset Farms Partner to Transform Chronic Disease Management Combining medical and nutritional expertise in comprehensive video solutions
Vancouver, B.C., June 1, 2022 — NOW Health Network (NHN) and Windset Farms have announced a new content and distribution collaboration to revolutionize the way people manage chronic diseases. NHN will work with Windset Farms to develop educational videos to accompany the sustainable produce supplier’s industry-leading recipes and cooking videos. NHN will utilize its large network of medical professionals such as cardiologists, endocrinologists and registered dietitians to deliver innovative videos to support people with chronic diseases.
“Managing a chronic disease such as diabetes or heart disease requires an integrated approach,” said Jackson Sayers, CEO, NOW Health Network. “By combining medical and nutritional expertise, NHN and Windset Farms can provide comprehensive digital solutions to not only help patients treat and manage chronic disease, but to greatly improve their quality of life.”
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) including heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and chronic lung disease are responsible for almost 70% of all deaths worldwide. One of the four major risk factors of NCDs is an unhealthy diet. NHN and Windset Farms believe that patients need new communication tools to understand chronic disease management and the power of healthy food as medicine.
"Our entire team at Windset Farms® is excited to be working with The NOW Health Network,” said Jon Newell “ COO owner Windset Farms®. NHN’s integrated approach to nutrition in regards to chronic diseases and healthy living is cutting edge. Together we'll be able to give unprecedented reach to people utilizing digital content creation and distribution services to take control of their health.”
