Other Health Advice and Information
When you think of adult and child health, you might think about various ways to stay healthy, from hand washing and vaccines to cancer prevention. Good for you! The choices you make everyday go a long way toward promoting adult and child health.
It’s equally important to pay attention to signs and symptoms. Know which health warning signs merit medical attention, from unexplained weight loss or changes in bowel habits to shortness of breath and sudden headaches.
Of course, regular physical examinations and health screening tests are an important part of preventative health care. Know which screening tests you need and how often to have them done. Early detection can be the key to successful treatment.
