Women do it all! We are often taking care of children, parents, coworkers, or friends. But, it is so very important to also take care of ourselves! One way we can do this is to see our healthcare providers. Appointments with a healthcare provider are vital to determine recommended tests and screenings and also address any issues. Recommended routine is determined by age and can vary based on family history and personal medical history. It is important to see your healthcare provider to determine the appropriate screening schedule for you. Preventative healthcare gives one the power to prevent disease by choosing habits consistent with a healthy lifestyle.
