Lesson 7 - Do I Need a Check Up?
Healthy adults often ask this important question. In the past, all adults were urged to have an annual physical exam. If your physician has suggested you continue that annual visit, it’s important that you follow that advice.
Today, however, there is more emphasis on periodic visits, based on a person’s health status, medical history, and individual risk factors for specific diseases. It is extremely important to be responsible for scheduling and receiving preventive checks based on your gender, age, and history.
