“Our Society and the Marketplace do not have a Healthcare Cost Crisis. We do not even have a Healthcare Crisis. We have a Health Crisis. As soon as we all understand this, and the real issues, then, and only then, will we be able to create solutions, and achieve profound Financial Strides, as we navigate through the 21st Century.” Rick Solofsky
