How does age play a factor in healthy living?
Barb Duchemin, BS, PA-C: Whether you're in your 20s or your 90s, you are going to have different health concerns. A well-woman visit is a yearly preventive checkup with your doctor. It's a time to check in on how you're doing, how you'd like to be doing, and what changes you can make to reach your health goals.
In addition to talking with your doctor or nurse about your health, you may also need certain vaccines (shots) and medical tests. You do not need every test every year!
