Thatís a long way of saying that allied health providers work to make sick or injured people healthy and keep them healthy.

There are HUNDREDS of allied health professions and over six million people in allied health jobs! That means that most people in healthcare are not doctors or nurses, but they are . . . Allied Health Professionals!
