Dear Visitor,

Welcome.  As Emerson said, “The first wealth is health.” Good health is the foundation for building a better future and is linked to our economy and national security.  That’s what this website is all about–to provide you with a wealth of resources about health issues of importance to you and your family especially during this coronavirus pandemic.

For consumers there are links to trustworthy, reliable health information, and a prescription for steps you can take towards a healthier future.  For health care professionals, there is information on medical and public health issues including COVID-19, health reform, cutting edge scientific advances and evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.

Knowledge is power when it comes to the health of your family, business, community, our country and world.  I hope this website is helpful to you.
