Lincoln, NE -- Congressman Jeff Fortenberry will host a free summit on opportunities for small businesses to address health care costs on Wednesday, February 17, 2010, in Lincoln. 

“No one disputes the diagnosis – health care must be strengthened in America,” Fortenberry said.  “One of my priorities is shifting the health care paradigm from a system that treats the symptoms of sickness and disease to one that promotes lifelong wellness and prevention.
