This book's purpose is to provide the readers with autonomy, giving them the knowledge that even in the face of multiple health threats, individuals can play a major role their own destiny.

It teaches how to build an additional wall to lessen the likelihood of a severe outcome if exposed to Covid-19. Beyond those things they are doing to protect themselves from exposure, and to accepting immunization, it describes the additional step of improving the chances of surviving infection.  Age and race are statistical risk factors for worse outcomes and death, yet are beyond people's control, which only leads to learned helplessness and frustration. This underlying risk is neither age nor race itself, but health issues associated with age and race, which are measurable and reversible!

The reader can start with self-assessment and begin to change now. In addition to a better defense against Covid-19, making changes will protect them from other chronic diseases in the future. 

Irving A. Cohen, MD, MPH has dedicated his medical career to the prevention of disease, focusing on early interventions to prevent more serious disease outcomes later. Recognizing that medicine focused on treating illness that was often preventable, he trained in Preventive Medicine and Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, and served as Chief Resident of Preventive Medicine. He has been Board-Certified in that field for 35 years and is a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. Dr. Cohen served in many settings and has held faculty appointments at prestigious institutions. He developed programs and has written books concerning recovery from addiction, overweight, and diabetes. He has presented at scientific forums in the U.S. and Canada. He recognized that the unequal risk of serious illness and death from Covid-19 was modifiable. He wrote this book to tell the public that they are not helpless, even when increased risk is attributed to race or age.
