Prevention/Screening

  • Foot Care - When we are in love we may be "swept off our feet." When we don't want to do something, we are said to have "cold feet." A sensible person "has both feet on the ground." Sometimes we even "vote with our feet." (US National Institute on Aging) Available in: Spanish

  • Healthy Aging: Preventing Disease and Improving Quality of Life Among Older Americans - “In 2011, the first wave of America’s 76 million baby boomers will turn 65 and trigger dramatic shifts in all aspects of American life. Our vision for the future is framed by productive, active engagement and high quality of life throughout the lifespan. Key to the achievement of that vision must be a substantially enhanced focus on preventing disease, promoting health, and preserving independence and quality of life among older Americans.” (US National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion)

  • Healthy Living: What You Can Do to Keep Your Health - Does what I do really affect my health? Very much so. All of the major causes of death - cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung disease and injury - can be prevented by things you do.  (American Academy of Family Physicians) Available in: Spanish

  • Pocket Guide to Staying Healthy at 50+ - This guide talks a lot about your risk for getting a disease or a condition and whether you are at risk for that health problem. Your risk for any disease or condition depends on whether you have one or more risk factors. (US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality) [PDF File] Available in: Spanish

  • Screening Tests for Adults (50 and Up) - About 20% of women ages 65 to 69 have not had a mammogram in the past 2 years. A mammogram detects a lump an average of 1.7 years before you can feel it. (American Association for Clinical Chemistry)

  • Taking Care Of Your Foot And Ankle - "My feet are killing me!" is one of the most enduring phrases in the English language. Like most clichés, this one is grounded in day-to-day experience: the foot and ankle region is subject to constant stresses and hazards, from the effects of ill-fitting shoes to traumatic sports injuries. (American Physical Therapy Association)
