She invested in Fruit Street Health because she believes preventive medicine is the future of medicine. In addition to promoting a state of well being, it also helps in early diagnoses of medical conditions through well established and validated screening programs so earlier interventions can be instituted. These interventions will ultimately decrease the escalating cost of medical cares in the United States and hopefully the global burden of preventable diseases in the years to come. Grace says “I feel privileged to be part of Fruit Street Health”.
