Donald McEachin. “Moreover, treating those who fall prey to any of these ailments is expensive, as well as time and work-intensive for our already burdened healthcare system. These dollars, which will aid efforts for prevention programs, could make a significant difference in both life expectancy and the functioning of the health care system.”
