About Us

The mission of Partners in Prevention is to reduce ill health and disease within our communities through assistance programs, education, and research.

What is even more saddening is that America spends the most money compared to any other country on its health care and yet for every dollar spent $.52 of that goes towards our doctors salaries and the upkeep of our hospitals. Only $.04 goes towards dental care, $.04 towards medical equipment and $.02 towards research. There is something severely disturbing with the ways that are money is being spent.
