Preventive care focuses on preventing diseases and maintaining proper health through the use of immunizations, vaccines, regular check-ups, routine physicals, and colonoscopies.
Each year, millions of Americans choose to skip routine physical examinations. Skipping these examinations allows for preventable diseases to end hundreds of thousands of lives. Healthy check-ups are essential for us to routinely attend. It may feel like a burden but it just takes one moment to discover a different pattern or major concern with your body and health by your physician. Think about it and take the appropriate actions. Treating a disease in its earliest stages is easier than combating an advanced disease which may be impossible to cure. Learn more about how you can prevent your body from harm.
Learn more about Preventive Health Care through the INS Website.
