New national council on prevention and health promotion
Earlier this month, President Obama signed an executive order creating a National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council. The council will be made up of top administration officials, including the Director of National Drug Control Policy. The council's purpose includes coordination among departments and agencies concerned with prevention, wellness, and health promotion and the development of an integrated health-care strategy that incorporates prevention as a way to improve the health status of Americans.
