Bangalore: Dr Vivek Hallegere Murthy, an Indian American has been selected to be part of the healthcare advisory committee constituted by Obama, reports Basavaraja Havaldar of Deccan Herald.
Vivek pointed out the fact that the expenses on healthcare in the country, both by the individuals and Government have been witnessing a heavy rise over the past few decades. So, with the establishment of the committee, steps will be taken to prevent diseases, which will help in the productivity of the nation.
Each and every citizen in the U.S will be included in the health insurance plan to lessen the personal spending on healthcare.
The improvement of hospitals and community healthcare will be taken care of along with spreading awareness on good health and protection of environment in schools and colleges.
