Five Minutes or Less for Health Weekly Tip: Schedule a Check-Up

Schedule a Check-Up

Monday, May 13, is National Women’s Check-Up Day and this week is National Women’s Health Week. The day is dedicated to encourage women to visit their health care professionals to receive or schedule check-ups, and to promote regular check-ups as vital to the early detection of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, mental health illnesses, sexually transmitted infections, and other conditions.

  • Make an appointment with your doctor or nurse for a check-up, vaccination, or test. Schedule at least one health screening during May 2013.
  • Write down a list of questions to ask your doctor or nurse about your health. Take it with you to your appointment, and write down the answers.
  • Tell your doctor or nurse if you have noticed any changes in your body, lifestyle habits, or work that may require changes in medicines, screenings, and health routines.
