In a move that is just in time for the 2008 tanning season, the state of Kentucky in the United States of America passed a law into effect limiting the age of people allowed to use tanning beds in public places. For instance, the Kent County Health Department works with the YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids, which has a nationally recognized program (the Diabetes Prevention Program) that helps prevent individuals diagnosed with prediabetes from becoming diabetic.\n\nWith such a demand for fast food, it is often all too easy for the employees to compromise their duties for the sake of saving time, and before they know it, they’ve served a meal that carries a nasty risk of food poisoning. Also check with your local Health Department.\n\nThe Anti-Kickback statute is not only a criminal prohibition against payments made purposefully to induce or reward the referral or generation of Federal health care business, it also addresses the offer or payment of anything of value in return for purchasing, leasing, ordering of any item or service reimbursable in whole or part by a Federal health care program.\n\nThis statute helps to improve efficiency, improve quality of care, and provide better information for patients and physicians. Through these contacts and through an introductory epidemiology course I have found that health departments are experts at providing population level health services.\n\nNo matter what the size of a business, whether it has just two employees or is comprised of a small organization with a group of 50 working heads, both these units qualify as a small business and hence are eligible to be granted with affordable small business group health insurance plans.
