Hospitals, clinics, and chronic disease programs, as well as disease researchers and the public health infrastructure will receive $750 million in federal funds for disease prevention this year, the Department of Health and Human Services has announced.

“Prevention is something that can’t just happen in a doctor’s office. If we are to address the big health issues of our time, from physical inactivity to poor nutrition to tobacco use, it needs to happen in local communities,” said Sebelius.
