Many people only think about going to the doctor when they feel sick, but going before then can actually prevent illness!
Dr. Davenport of Revere Health joins Fresh Living to tell us more about the importance of checkups for us and our kids.
While it might be tempting to skip out on yearly checkups when everything's running smoothly, seeing your physician or pediatrician can prevent disease and help disease be caught and treated earlier.
These yearly visits are especially important for kids, as they can help maximize a child's health and growth potential.
Especially with COVID cases still climbing, it's important to have checkups, as well as to be sure that your child's vaccines and immunizations are up to date.
Checkups can also be beneficial for mental health. Mental health is an important part of a child's wellbeing. The USPSTF recommends that kids age 12-18 be screened for major depressive disorder.
Overall, a proactive approach is the best approach when it comes to you or your child's health!
