Albany - Your future health is mostly in your own hands - that was the message from one of the nation's leaders in health. Dr. Louis Sullivan, former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, spoke to a crowd in Albany Tuesday.

He encouraged people to eat healthier, exercise more, and stop smoking. Dr. Sullivan says since health care cost continue to rise, a healthy lifestyle can also save you money.

"You really want have to pay for those significant sums of money from treatment conditions," said Dr. Sullivan. "And, it's always much better to prevent something than to treat it because in treating, you don't always get back 100%."

Dr. Sullivan says you can kick-start your healthier lifestyle by simply walking each day.

Sullivan is the founding Dean and President of the Morehouse School of Medicine.
