Why Preventive Care Matters Now

Preventive healthcare

Don’t delay preventive screenings; the benefits outweigh the downside! 

Talk to your doctor about preparation for specific preventive screenings, what your options are, other methods or options. For example, instead of a colonoscopy, you may be eligible for a Cologuard screening. Don’t hesitate – talk to your doctor to find what is best for you!

Get screened based on your risk factors.

Some health conditions may develop and not show symptoms for a long time. You should get screened based on your risk factors and age, not only because you are experiencing symptoms! Some who have a family history of certain health conditions may need to begin screenings earlier.

Regular checkups give you the chance to share and ask questions about your health, and gets the support that you need and deserve.
