Address Your Personal Health Needs
Are you as healthy as you want to be? Do heart disease, cancer, diabetes or any other chronic condition run in your family? Knowing your family’s medical history and any other risks you may have is an important part of managing your own health. Discuss your unique health concerns with your doctor at your regular checkups and screenings. You are getting regular medical checkups – right? If you have Â neglected important Â yearly visits to the doctor, please get on the phone and make that appointment. Do not put them off any longer! Eating healthy, getting regular check-ups and medical screenings and regular exercise can help protect your health and keep you active for years to come. Maintaining good health now has a lot to do with how independent you will be later on. Check with your local health department for free health screening. Also, look for the AARPÂ Walgreens Free Wellness Tour in your city.

Dental cleanings and check-ups

Full body check by your dermatologist for skin cancers

For existing health issues – make sure you are current with specific exams and screening tests – don’t procrastinate!
Many serious health conditions and complications can be avoided by visiting your health care provider on a regular basis. Your health and your life is very precious – just ask anyone who loves you!
Once again – do not delay. Be Fit For Your Future!
