17 Jun, 2013, 17:51 ET
CALGARY, June 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada's health-care system offers help to those who need it. But treating people only when they become sick is expensive. As such, some experts have advocated for more early intervention services devoted to health promotion and disease prevention, in part to save Canada's over-burdened health-care system. But just how effective is health-care intervention?
Media are invited to a media conference where Professor Herb Emery will share the findings of a study that evaluates the costs and benefits of a preventative care pilot program operating independently of the publicly funded health care system. Emery will also speak to whether upstream programs should be part of the publicly funded health-care system.
