Prevention and Wellness Through the Decades
What if you could avoid getting sick? Preventative medicine is an approach to care that promotes health and well-being in order to prevent disease or disability from happening. At the Women’s Health Program at Waterbury HEALTH, we believe that prevention and health maintenance should be a priority for all women, no matter what stage of life they are in.
The following is a general list of guidelines for women’s prevention and wellness through the decades. The guidelines are based on screening recommendations set by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF), an independent panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine. The exact types and frequency of screenings will vary depending on individual risk factors like preexisting conditions, family history, genetics, race/ethnicity, or pregnancy.
For a personalized health risk assessment by our expert team, or to schedule any of the screening tests listed below, please call our personal health navigator service at (888) 504-4HER to make an appointment.
