Health Screening and Guidelines at Any Age: Which Tests Are Right for Me?

Description

Getting preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take to manage your health. That’s because when a condition is diagnosed early, it is usually easier to treat. Acting early also gives you the opportunity to modify lifestyle choices and can help prevent the risk of cancer and heart disease. This lecture will discuss the specific screening recommendations, including when and how often you should have the screening and what the screening is designed to do.

Lunch will be provided after the program. In collaboration with the Office of Business Affairs at Woodhull Medical Center North Brooklyn Health Network.
