Nobel Prize for Public Health?

Nicholas Kristof has a good idea in today’s New York Times:

The larger problem is that we over-invest in clinical care like CAT scans and underinvest in public health. There should be a Nobel Prize for Public Health, so that we might get more great minds wrestling with nonmedical pieces of the health puzzle, like industrial hog farms that can serve as breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria, from swine flu to MRSA.

I, for one, am a big fan of turning our “sick care” system into a true health care system!
