​EMBRACE LIFE is a website featuring short video films about life with a chronic disease. Ordinary men and women talk about living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease or dementia. Hanging in there started as part of the Capital Region Chronic Diseases Programme, and was developed in close cooperation with patient associations and members of the public. In 2012 the Capital Region decided to deliver EMBRACE LIFE as a permanent service for Capital Region residents, and new video films and networks will be developed in the years to come.​​​
