Report: Indiana last in CDC disease prevention money
Indiana ranks dead last among states in getting federal funds to prevent disease and injuries, leaving it more vulnerable to higher healthcare costs at a time when the recession has cut state revenues, according to a report. Indiana collected just $12.74 per person last year from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for programs to inhibit disease and prevention programs, the nonprofit Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation said in the report.
