Newsletter News Brief: Incentives For Doctors To Keep You Healthy

Is the following statement really true? Comparing this to America's health system, it's hard to even fathom...

"...These problems are multiplied by a medical profession and a society that prefers responding to the symptom rather than prevention. Doctors in America get paid when you’re ill, but in China, doctors get paid when their clients are well. (A monthly fee is paid to doctors when you’re well as an incentive for doctors to maintain this state. The fee is not paid when the patient visits the doctor)." -From, "Developing Positive Self-Images & Discipline In Black Children" By: Jawanza Kunjufu
