“I really enjoy The Acclivity Health Report. My favorite thing is how many different choices it gives you, including all the latest healthcare information and trends. I especially appreciated the one about the FDA warning about not taking the flu vaccine with needle-free devices. The article also listed specific companies and what they are doing about this device and if they are going to use it or now for the public. This is very helpful for a busy career person who has limited time to spend reading long lengthy articles. Thanks so much for this very informative Health Report.”
