Family Photo Album: Health … Meet Insurance.
My entire life I have been surrounded by world-renowned preventive health care professionals. My father left the YMCA to serve as the first employee and Executive Director of the Cooper Aerobics Center in Dallas in 1971. Me and my sisters took for granted the privilege of playing at this Center when we were young. It is where we learned to crawl, walk, run, swim, and dribble a basketball.
I came across this vintage photo in my dad’s attic. This piece of history reminded me how my old man dedicated his career to helping others through preventive medicine. These pioneers were ahead of their time in proving it is smarter to invest moderately in prevention than to pay heavily for illness.
Burden shifting the cost of medical insurance to your employees and failing to alert employees to warning signs of disease is not good for business.
