Non-communicable diseases, such as heart diseases, stroke, and Type II diabetes, are associated with behavioral choices – and may be prevented and treated by changes in diet, environment, and lifestyle. The Nordic countries are known to regulate lifestyles on macro level in a manner that channels solidarity and altruism on the individual level. 

The conference is free of charge, but the participants pay their own travel and accommodation costs.
