Have you scheduled your annual checkup with your doctor yet? Do you know if you are current on all your immunizations and screenings? Living a healthy lifestyle is certainly a key ingredient to living a healthy, long life. But it is not a guarantee that you will never get a serious illness. It is important to get regular checkups and screenings as recommended by your healthcare provider.

Are you wondering what screenings you need to have done? Check out this cool tool called “myhealthfinder” that provides personalized recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Taskforce based on age and gender. Just enter in your age and gender and click “Get Results".

Also, in addition to having medical screenings to look for early disease, it’s also important to take a Health Risk Assessment to see how to make changes early before disease occurs. Go ahead and take a confidential, comprehensive Personal Health Assessment.

Take charge of your health! Use the myhealthfinder and take the personal health assessment. Last and most importantly, find a doctor and call and schedule your annual checkup today! Don’t forget to bring a copy of your Personal Health Assessment results with you.
