Many factors affect your health. Some you cannot control, such as your genetic makeup or your age. But you can make changes to your lifestyle. Getting regular check ups, preventive screening tests, and immunizations are among the most important things you can do for your health.
Take time to review guidelines for screening tests and immunizations. Visit your doctor to discuss your family medical history and the tests and screenings that are recommended for you. By taking steps toward healthy living, you can help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and other serious diseases.
