Your guide to staying healthy
Preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take towards achieving and maintaining a healthy life. You and your health care provider identify good lifestyle choices and schedule the suitable health screenings.
What is preventive care?
Preventive care is working hand in hand with your medical provider to make healthy lifestyle decisions. Annual exams, smoking cessation, and weight loss are just a few of the services we can help you with. We focus on preventing illnesses, injuries or medical conditions before they happen.
Why preventive care is important
Preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take to manage your health, because many of the main reasons for failing health or death are due to illnesses that are preventable.
Breast cancer screening - Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. Breast self-exams alone have not been shown to reduce deaths from breast cancer.
Colon cancer screening - For all Americans, including those who smoke, colon cancer is the second leading cause of death just after lung cancer.
Doing your part
- Healthy eating - Poor diet choices have long-term consequences for your health.
- Importance of exercise - Physical activity involves moving the body. Being active and maintaining a healthy weight are needed for good health.
