Health Guidelines

At Harris Health System we believe wellness is a state of optimum health and well-being, achieved through the active pursuit of good health.

We also believe every individual is personally responsible for adopting healthy lifestyle habits. Wide-spread agreement exists about the dangers of smoking and substance abuse, the harmful effects of obesity, the importance of physical and emotional fitness and the effectiveness of good nutrition.

Your first step toward a healthy lifestyle is making an appointment at your Medical Home with your healthcare provider. Together, you and your healthcare team can create a preventive care plan.

To stay healthy, it’s important to follow the recommended health guidelines set by your doctor. Preventive medical tests can find diseases early, when they’re easiest to treat. Talk to your doctor about which preventive medical tests (children, men, women) you need to stay healthy.
