I just got back from Florida to witness the launch of an important collaboration between U.S. Preventive Medicine and Sam’s Club.
For those of you who may not know about it, U.S. Preventive Medicine is this great new company that is bringing the practice of prevention to millions of Americans through interactive technology and actual medical health professionals.
The goal of The Prevention Plan is to provide people with the tools they need to eliminate the factors in their lives that may put them at risk for diabetes, hypertension or coronary heart disease, just to name a few.
They do this by offering medical assessments and blood tests, and then follow it all up with customized health plans based on your results. The company offers its users a number of benefits, not the least of which is the motivation and convenience that’s so crucial in achieving health goals.
I’m proud of all the folks at U.S. Preventive Medicine, who have capitalized on a very simple – but very important – concept: The best treatment for an ailment or illness is never getting it at all.
