Take Charge of YOUR HEALTH

It's time to take charge of your health! Schedule an appointment with your health care provider to discuss what screenings and exams you need and when you need them. Below are resources to help you and your health care provider determine what health services and screenings are best for you.

WHY ARE CHECK-UPS IMPORTANT?

Regular health exams and tests can help find problems before they start. They also can help find problems early, when your chances for treatment and cure are better. By getting the right health services, screenings, and treatments, you are taking steps that help your chances for living a longer, healthier life. Your age, health and family history, lifestyle choices (i.e. what you eat, how active you are, whether you smoke), and other important factors impact what and how often you need healthcare.

WHERE CAN I GO FOR HEALTH SERVICES?

The best place to go for health services is your regular health care provider. However, if you do not have one, the links below provide other options.

ENCOURAGING OTHERS

You may also want to start a campaign in your community (i.e. a faith-based setting, workplace, school, or civic group) to encourage others to make an appointment for a check-up or health screening on National Women's Check-Up Day (the day after Mother's Day each year) or National Men's Health Week (the week before Father's Day each year).
