Posted: Updated:

In the ongoing debate about health care in our country, much of the discussion is about what happens to an individual after they've suffered an injury or are already dealing with a disease or condition.  All are important topics, but as Ben Franklin once said, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
