Prevention vs. Treatment - Book of the Year

Posted Jan 02 2013 11:02am
A book to which I  contributed chapter 10, "The Slow Transition of U.S. Law Toward a Greater Emphasis on Prevention," was just named as one of  Washington Post Wonkblog's  "Books of the Year."   The book  is Prevention vs. Treatment: What’s the Right Balance? By (Halley Faust and Paul Menzel  eds., Oxford University Press, Oct. 2011).

Sarah Kliff  writes:  "I spent a good part of this year writing a  three-part series  on the health-care law’s Prevention and Public Health Fund, the Affordable Care Act’s $15 billion investment in preventing costly diseases before they occur. I found Faust and Menzel’s book a hugely helpful frame for thinking about how public dollars are spent in health care and better understanding how the two interact."
