The Importance of Awareness
Regardless of your age or health status, it is always the right time to begin leading a healthy lifestyle. Your annual visit gives you the opportunity to evaluate your personal risks.
There are general categories of health risks that are important to be be aware of as well as age related and gender specific risk factors. One example is heart disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women and stroke is the fourth leading cause of death. Each of these disease are strongly correlated to lifestyle issues. The good news is that every day is a new opportunity to make health changes in your life and you don’t have to do it alone!
