As a doctor, I’m used to treating diseases, but I would like it if the paradigm changed and if, in addition to treating the sick, we could teach healthy people how not to get sick. Every single euro spent on prevention saves us at least 12 euros in treatment later on. It’s an opportunity that we must not miss.
