n recently issued a health policy resolution encouraging broader aspirin counseling. Additionally, the Partnership for Prevention's Prevention Priorities Report ranked aspirin counseling as a number-one preventive health service, and determined that 45,000 lives could be saved each year if more at-risk adults took aspirin.
