Empower Yourself

December 4, 2013

Knowing your current health, family medical history, and care options will help you get the most from your next medical appointment.

To Arrive Prepared…

  • Strive to be your Healthiest Self. If your physician recommends improving your diet or lifestyle, commit to the change and ask about the next step.
  • Organize Your Health Information. Know your primary care physician’s contact information, your current and past health conditions or procedures, and your allergies and current medications.

Speak Up! If you don’t understand something, ask for clarification. If you would find it helpful, consider asking a close friend or family member to come with you to write down important details and ask follow-up questions that may not occur to you.
