Date:12/13/2007

DALLAS and LONDON, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Preventive Medicine(R), a company that is building the first network focused on prevention in the United States and internationally (http://www.USPreventiveMedicine.com), announced today it has signed a letter of intent with iHealth UK Ltd. to jointly develop three preventive medicine businesses in the United Kingdom. iHealth brings together leading clinicians, advanced modalities, electronic integration and a holistic perspective to support enhanced wellbeing through its health screening and assessment services.

As part of the agreement, iHealth will market preventive medicine services initially in the greater London area, wider UK and other international markets in collaboration with U.S. Preventive Medicine (USPM) by leveraging USPM's proprietary systems, operating procedures and branding and marketing materials.

In addition, iHealth will jointly develop and operate USPM's proprietary services and products in England, including The Prevention Plan(TM), a groundbreaking personalized wellness program delivered online to individuals. The Prevention Plan is primarily sold to employers to help manage future health costs. It helps individuals determine their top health risks and provides a step-by-step plan for improving and tracking their health. The agreement also enables iHealth to jointly develop and operate USPM's chronic disease management business in England.

"We are excited to provide practical solutions for preventive care and disease management to consumers in England through our agreement with iHealth," said Christopher Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. "This expansion into Europe is the first step in USPM's plan to provide practical solutions at every point in the healthcare continuum both nationally and internationally."

"Our partnership with USPM gives us access to an even wider team of health care experts to share knowledge, experiences, new technologies, procedures and treatments and provide the best possible preventive health programs," said Stefan Wisbauer, Chief Executive Officer of iHealth. U.S. Preventive Medicine and iHealth expect to sign a definitive agreement in January, 2008.
