Prevention Is Theme of National Public Health Week


Next week is National Public Health Week and Jefferson County Public Health is gearing up.

Supervising Public Health nurse Patti Esford says the U.S. spends more on health care than any other country, but we don't always get a good return on that investment.
Out of every dollar spent on health care, 75 cents are spent on preventable chronic diseases, while only 3 cents are spent preventing those diseases.
National Public Health Week is April 1 through 7
