Prevention & Wellness

Prevention

It’s much easier to prevent a disease than it is to treat one. Staying up-to-date on vaccinations and screenings can help you stay healthy and catch health problems early, when they’re easiest to treat.  Learn more about Mayo Clinic's recommended child/adolescent and adult prevention schedules. If you or a family member is due for a screening, contact you primary care team to set up an appointment, or request an appointment via Patient Online Services.

Wellness

Good health depends more on what happens outside your provider’s office than in it. Do you choose an apple or grab a bag of chips for a snack? Sleep in, or get up and exercise? Relax by smoking, or meditating? Choices like these have a tremendous impact on your health.

It can be challenging to make healthful choices in a world that makes unhealthy choices so easy — and so appealing. But your primary care team has information and tools to make it easier. Whether you want to improve your diet, begin an exercise program, quit smoking or learn to manage stress, your care team can help. Contact them to set up an appointment. You can also learn more by exploring Mayo Clinic’s Healthy Lifestyle resources.
