ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. --

Preventive care is designed to help you stay healthy.  It may help catch health problems early - before any signs of illness.  Often, that's when they're easier to treat. 

 

Preventive care includes:

 

Screening tests.  These help detect conditions such as diabetes and certain types of cancer - and give important information about your heart health.  Federal civilian employees can complete a Cardiac Risk Profile screening (cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, blood pressure) with CHPS once/fiscal year.    

 

Vaccines.  These aren't just for kids.  Adults need shots to help prevent illnesses such as flu, tetanus and whooping cough.  Click here to learn more about Immunization Schedules from the CDC. 

 

Wellness checkups.  Seeing your primary care doctor for preventive visits gives you a chance to find out what tests and vaccines you need.  It's also an opportunity to discuss steps to help you live a healthier life, such as quitting tobacco, being more active or losing weight.  Did you know that all Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) plans cover preventative care?  Click here to learn more about your plans benefits.    

 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month.  Learn more about your health status at an upcoming event with Robins CHPS this month:
