WASHINGTON, Feb. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
Profile America - Saturday, February 23rd. The nation's first college of pharmacy was founded in Philadelphia on this date in 1821, an appropriate anniversary to note that many health care organizations prescribe February as Wise Health Care Consumer Month. The "RX" for Americans is to invest at least as much time in researching their health care options as they do for a new TV.
While prescription medication is one aspect of health care consumption, all levels of services and insurance are the elements of being a wise health care consumer. In the U.S., the number of people without health insurance coverage declined from 50 million in 2010 to 48.6 million in 2011. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
