Academy members play critical roles in programs across the country that prevent chronic disease and reduce health care costs, yet these important prevention strategies are not getting the recognition they deserve when it comes to cost savings. The Preventive Health Savings Act of 2019 (S. 1361, H.R. 2584) would allow the Congressional Budget Office to more accurately reflect long-term cost-savings of preventive health initiatives that promote and maintain positive health and prevent disease and premature death. Take action today!
