HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the agency will invest $750 million in four areas related to prevention, including research to track the effects of last year’s health reform law on the health of Americans.

The money will come from the Prevention and Public Health Fund created in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and build on the $500 million that was invested last year, according to HHS.
