Last night in his Presidential Address to Congress President Obama said: “Our recovery plan … makes the largest investment ever in preventive care, because that is one of the best ways to keep our people healthy and our costs under control.”
Finally, the truth is being spoken on national television! I felt so proud to finally have a leader who understands the importance of taking care of ourselves before we get sick!
However, preventive care is not just about going for annual check-ups; it is also about taking full responsibility for our health. Nobody can make us vibrant, healthy, happy and full of life. NOBODY! Whether we are healthy or sick is fully up to us.
