Why is Allied Health important?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 17 of the top 30 fastest growing occupations are in the health-related professions. Additionally, the BLS projects that health care employment will increase by an average of 22% over the next 10 years, which is almost double the rate of other industries.
