Prevention and Healthy Living for Men
Prevention is one important step you can take to stay healthy. Preventive care includes seeking health care services, even while you are healthy, to prevent disease in the future. Managing existing conditions is also important for leading a healthy life. Seeking preventive care and managing chronic diseases reduces the risk of injury and illness and can help prevent expensive health care bills later in life.
