We want you to be healthy!
We want you to get screened for diabetes and other diseases. We want you to understand the risk factors for the diseases that run in your family, and do what it takes to minimize those risks. We want you to eat right and exercise, because sometimes that’s all it takes to reduce your chances of becoming ill. We want the women in your life to have a mammogram. And if you or a loved one is battling a disease -- and you need to talk to someone who understands what you’re going through -- we want you to have a support group.
