March into Health
We’ve often heard prevention is the best medicine. By living a healthy lifestyle and getting regular health screens and tests we can prevent or stave off chronic illnesses. Annual lab work is a good way to receive a snapshot of your current health. This year, we urge you to March into Health by getting your lab tests completed throughout the month of March. Then, come to the health fair to pick up your results and discuss them with a member of our medical team.
