Organize Your Health

Don't forget how important it is to organize your health. Here are a few ideas to help get your health history and future in order:
  • For an easy reminder, schedule all of your annual appointments around your birthday.
  • Record all appointments in your calendar as soon as you make them to avoid forgetting dates or times.
  • Track your medical history and self-exams in a dedicated health file.
  • Talk to relatives about their medical history to identify any possible hereditary conditions, include these notes in your file.
  • Bring a journal and your health file to doctors visits to make notes and address concerns.
