The timing is good on this study, because there is now a new national advisory panel on health promotion and disease prevention.   If there is one element of reform we do not want eliminated it is this one.

We are not going to reduce costs without reducing the incidence of illness.  This is an important step in the right direction. 

But, it needs our support to make this work. 

Cheers and more later.  Kathleen
