Hi TRB Health and Transportation Subcommittee Friends,

 

I invite you to visit the Prevention Forum, in which Prevention Institute's Larry Cohen discusses the strength and opportunities presented by the landmark National Prevention Strategy, released last week. The recent release of the NPS is historic, says Cohen: "For the first time the nation has delineated a broad, coherent approach to prevention, and made it clear that prevention is critical for improving our health." The NPS was shaped by seventeen different agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Trade commission and the Department of Agriculture. Virtually every department in government is working together to focus on how to achieve health and wellbeing for the people in every US community.
