Modern Healthcare

After unveiling the nation’s first National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy, HHS on Thursday announced $4 million in available grant funding for community-based organizations to help promote healthier communities nationwide.

Authorized in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the National Prevention Strategy is based on the view that good health comes not just from good medical care, but also from things such as clean air and water, safe outdoor spaces for physical activity, safe worksites, healthy food and violence-free environments.
