Health Screenings to Get in Your 30s, 40s and 50s

Early detection of an illness can increase your chances for successful treatment and reduce the overall effects of disease. Preventive health screenings are an important way to identify people who may have a disease, but aren’t showing symptoms yet. Determining which screenings you should have can vary depending on your age, gender and medical history.

Join Dr. Caitlin Fawcett from ConsumerMedical for a FREE, educational webinar covering these important topics:

  • General health screenings (e.g., blood pressure, osteoporosis)
  • Screenings for women’s health (e.g., mammogram, pap smear)
  • Screenings for men’s health (e.g., prostate cancer, testicular exam)
  • Treatment options for common heart diseases
  • Cancer screenings (e.g., colon cancer, skin cancer)
