Prevention is the key to better quality of life and improved healthcare outcomes.
Chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, are responsible for 7 of every 10 deaths among Americans each year. These chronic diseases can be largely preventable through close partnership with your healthcare team, or can be detected through appropriate screenings, when treatment works best.
The right preventive care at every stage of life helps you stay healthy, avoid or delay the onset of disease, or keeps current diseases from becoming worse. Eating healthy, exercising regularly, avoiding tobacco, and receiving preventive services such as cancer screenings, preventive visits and vaccinations are just a few examples of ways you can stay healthy.
