Yes, it is true. Seventy-five percent of every dollar spent on health care in this country is spent on chronic diseases. The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease recently released a new television ad featuring Katy Segal, Phylicia Rashad, Lauren Bacall and Mary-Louise Parker along side every day women in an ad asking women to be sure who they vote for on November 4th is going to help with this situation.
The ad has appeal. I find myself turning around again and again to watch it as it airs throughout the day. Be sure that you know where whoever you vote for stands on this issue.
