Have a healthy summer with preventive care

Practice prevention this summer

Have a healthy summer with preventive care

The official first day of summer is right around the corner. As we enter a new season, it’s important to be proactive with your health. One simple way to manage your health is to practice preventive care.

Preventive services include:
  • screenings for things like cancer, depression, blood pressure, cholesterol, and tobacco use
  • immunization vaccines like the flu shot and Tetanus vaccine
  • check-ups
  • patient counseling for alcohol misuse, tobacco use and diet
These services are used to prevent illnesses, disease, and other health problems, or to detect illness at an early stage when treatment is likely to work best.
