Alliance Healthcare Foundation Says Innovation is the Key to Prevention
They say prevention is the best medicine. Not only are people happier and more productive when are healthy, they don’t need costly treatment for illness.
But not everyone is on board with the benefits of preventative health care. Low-income communities tend to have lower rates of health care literacy, therefore access preventative care inconsistently. Some communities mistrust the medical establishment, especially when it is – or appears to be – associated with a government agency. Sadly, the result tends to be serious health disparities in communities of color, including immigrants and refugees.
