Public Health is Return On Investment: Save Lives, Save Money
Cass County Health, Human & Veterans Services recognizes National Public Health Week April 1-7.
This year’s theme is “Public Health is ROI (Return On Investment). Save Lives, Save Money.” Research shows that investing just $10 per person each year in proven, community-based public health efforts can save the nation more than $16 billion within five years. That’s a $5.60 return for every $1 invested.
