Deseret News discussed the results of a poll for Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Trust for America’s Health, which most notably found that Americans are looking to focus on preventative healthcare rather than just “sick care.”
“We gave Americans a list of proposals being considered to reform health care, and investing in prevention trumped them all,” said pollster Bill McInturff. “It’s clear that Americans see the value of prevention for reducing disease, improving quality of life and lowering health-care costs.”
