Be someone’s hero

 Someone's hero

You’re likely a hero to someone in your life. It might be a child or grandchild, a sibling or spouse, or a good friend. It could be anyone whose life you’ve made a difference in.

Being their hero has responsibilities—that includes being your healthiest so you’re there for them as long as possible.

Keep taking the next steps

Maybe you already practice healthy habits like eating healthy foods and exercising. That’s great! Here are a few more things you can do to improve your health and well-being:

  • Schedule regular checkups with your doctor
  • Take medications as prescribed and note any side effects to discuss with your doctor
  • Minimize hazards in your home that could cause falls or injuries
  • Manage your stress, and get enough sleep
  • Find information and resources you need on upcoming surgeries or ongoing health issues

Get your annual screenings

Discuss with your doctor which screenings you’ll need.

  • Cholesterol screening/lipid profile
  • Blood pressure
  • Diabetes screening
  • Bone density test
  • Colon cancer screening
  • Eye exams and vision screening
  • Hearing test
  • Skin cancer screening
  • Vitamin D test
  • Dental exam
  • Pregnancy diabetes screenings

  • Physical breast exams

Be your healthiest for the important people in your life

Living your healthiest life possible means more than taking medications and seeing a doctor when you don’t feel well. It’s an ongoing commitment to managing and improving your health.

All that effort is worth it. You may feel better, and you can continue to be there—and be a hero—for the people who need you.
