Health and Safety

Following health and safety procedures help prevent accidents and reduce the risk of injury and illness.

Health Screenings

Often, the earlier a disease is diagnosed, the more likely  it is that it can be cured or successfully managed. Treating the disease early may also make the disease easier to live with.

How do you find health problems early?

Doctor Talking To Patient

Your doctor may suggest:

Screening tests, which find health problems before symptoms appear. Examples of screening tests include mammograms to find breast cancer and colonoscopy to find colon cancer.

Diagnostic tests, medical exams, and self-exams, which find a disease or other health problem early in its course.
