"Dr. Parekh's book is a reminder that we have a shared responsibility to improve the health status of all Americans. Generations from now, people will look back upon this time and ask why we didn't do more to cover the uninsured, control healthcare costs, improve healthcare quality, and reduce disparities. Those will be valid questions. But the question that we should be most concerned with is why we allowed hundreds of thousands of potentially preventable deaths in America each year. Prevention First is an apt title for a critical and timely message that resonates with all of us in search of better health."

"Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Dr. Parekh's book is deeply compelling for its rich humanity, sense of history, and thoughtful vision for the future. It makes the power of prevention come alive for our nation and the world."

"Parekh offers a thoughtful, comprehensive analysis of the reasons, both inside and outside our current healthcare system, for our collective failure to embrace prevention, as well as a practical prescription to create a culture of prevention. If you strive to improve the health of our nation, read it. You won't be disappointed."

"Prevention First is a must read for policymakers and healthcare leaders looking to empower individuals and support communities to attain better health."

"Prevention can no longer be an afterthought in our discussion of public policies involving healthcare reform. Dr. Parekh's book is an excellent primer on why we need to change our thinking on medicine and prevention strategies."

"Without a renewed focus on prevention and public health, we will not fully meet the goal of improving the health of America's population. As a policymaker and an advocate, I hope we listen to Dr. Parekh."

"Benjamin Franklin so famously stated, 'An Ounce of Prevention is worth a Pound of Cure.' Prevention First makes a compelling case that health promotion and disease prevention is a best buy and a wise investment for policy makers."

"Dr. Parekh's lucid examination of some of the pressing issues that drive cost and accessibility to modern healthcare is a cogent reminder that a little well-placed prevention avoids the need for large scale cure(s). From infectious disease to diseases bourn of habit and systematic inequalities, Prevention First provides a compelling argument for support of population health research and evidence-based public health policy."

"At a time in the United States when high-tech and high-cost reactive care is the norm, Dr. Parekh beautifully articulates why and how citizens, clinicians, investigators, employers, communities, and government should and can embrace prevention as a national imperative. Our health and our economic viability mandate it."

"Dr. Parekh's book is a must read for policymakers who are looking for a thoughtful playbook of opportunities to improve the public's health."

"Dr. Parekh provides a powerful compelling argument for prevention in his new book. Written by someone who has spent his entire career analyzing and implementing solutions, it is a must read for anyone looking to understand the path to meaningful healthcare reform."
