The pandemic has caused us to put a lot on hold, and for a third of Americans, that includes routine health care.
Because keeping up with routine care is vital to preventing diseases and managing chronic conditions, MU Health Care is here to help patients get back on track with the care they missed. If you’re one of the many who had to skip or delay care, it's time to check back in on your health and focus on the pieces you may have put on hold.
Here's a helpful checklist to get started:
- Have you checked in with your provider about any existing conditions?
- Are you up-to-date on recommended cancer screenings? Not sure? Download our guide.
- Have you had a wellness visit within the past year?
- Are your prescriptions refilled and up-to-date?
- Have you had your blood pressure checked recently? See how you can do your own screening.
- Are you up-to-date on your immunizations?
- If you have children, are they up-to-date on their well-child checkups and immunizations?
- Have you received the COVID-19 vaccine? Schedule now
If you answered no to any of the above, our team is here for you — both in person and online.
