Providing concrete steps that federal policymakers should take to promote prevention both within and outside our healthcare sector Prevention First not only sounds the alarm about the terrible consequences of preventable disease but serves as a rallying cry that we can and must do better in this country to reduce preventable deaths. Deaths from preventable disease have decreased life expectancy in the United States for the first time in a century. This book argues that we must deal with the crisis by embracing prevention as our nation s top health sector priority. In Prevention First Dr. Anand K. Parekh chief medical advisor of the Bipartisan Policy Center argues that disease prevention must be our nation s top health policy priority. Building a personal culture of prevention he writes is not enough; elected officials and policymakers must play a greater role in reducing preventable deaths. Drawing on his experiences as a clinician public servant and policy advisor Dr. Parekh provides examples of prevention in action from across the country giving readers a view into why prevention-first policies are important and how they can be accomplished. Throughout the book he demonstrates that in order to optimize health in America we must leverage health insurance programs to promote disease prevention expand primary care attend to the social determinants of health support making the healthier choice the easy choice for individuals and increase public health investments. Describing the areas of common ground to be found in public health and prevention even between the entrenched sides in the healthcare policy debate Dr. Parekh establishes a foundation on which healthcare policy makers and advocates can build. Providing concrete steps that federal policymakers should take to promote prevention both within and outside our healthcare sector Prevention First not only sounds the alarm about the terrible consequences of preventable disease but serves as a rallying cry that we can and must do better in this country to reduce preventable deaths.
