Health-Related Tourism Catching On
Date:9/24/2009

PENSACOLA, Fla., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- In these economically challenging times, many experts say it is vital to invest in preventative healthcare. Better overall health means lower medical bills.

Reports show that only 14 percent of Americans took two weeks of vacation last year, and the number of Americans taking family vacations has dropped by a third in the past generation.

We are combining Andrews Institute's expertise with our beautiful resort, gourmet cuisine and famous white beaches as the backdrop."

Andrews is known for its state-of-the-art medical care and research, with its doctors regularly serving the nation's top athletes. Now, everyday people are being offered access to the latest research and information from Andrews' experts on nutrition, anti-aging, bone and joint health and other subjects.
