Preventive screenings are an important step in maintaining good health. Finding potential illnesses before they occur may allow opportunities to avoid disease. Finding disease at the earliest stages may lead to less necessary treatment and improved outcomes.

Schedule a routine annual exam and create a plan with your doctor to complete the screenings that are most appropriate for you.

The following preventive screenings are recommended for most adults.

  • Alcohol misuse and tobacco use screening
  • Blood Pressure screening
  • Cholesterol screening
  • Colorectal cancer screening
  • Depression and anxiety screening
  • Diabetes screening
  • Obesity screening
  • Sexually transmitted disease screening
  • Breast cancer screening
  • Cervical cancer screening

The preventive screenings your personal doctor recommends will depend on your age, gender, current health issues and risk factors. Please visit https://www.healthcare.gov/preventive-care-adults/ for additional information regarding preventive screenings.
