PRESIDENTS LIVE LONGER
(SO SHOULD YOU)

A recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association demonstrated that when you compare how long Presidents of the United States would have been expected to live* versus how long they actually lived, presidents historically live an average of 5.5 extra years.  Additionally, during the past 30 years, with the implementation of modern preventive healthcare practices and recent improvements in medical technology, presidents live to an average age of 89, or 17 years longer than expected. Furthermore, the medical condition of currently living presidents and their family members reflects the potential for remaining active and productive during those additional years. One of the factors undoubtedly contributing to presidential well-being is the special program of healthcare received by presidents, which includes an annual comprehensive Preventive Executive Physical and Presidential Primary Care.
Shouldn’t your healthcare be Presidential Healthcare?
