Did you know that, with preventative screening, we can save more than 100,000 lives each year? It’s true. By getting checkups, screenings, and healthcare counseling, we can prevent some illnesses, and catch others before it’s too late. And the best part is, with many health plans, screenings are often covered as part of your plan.
Types of preventative care include the following:
- Blood pressure screening
- Diabetes screening
- Cholesterol screening
- Screening for sexually transmitted infections
- Well-woman and well-baby examinations
- Prenatal screenings
- Flu shots
You can also talk with your healthcare provider here at Horizon Family Medical Group to identify other ways to get and stay healthy. For example, if you’re a smoker, you may want to discuss smoking cessation programs. Eating healthy and maintaining proper weight. We also ask about depression and alcohol use.
