When it comes to our wellness journeys, it is true that we all start from a different place. In terms of age, health and family, background, there is great diversity in the range of those starting points! But for each of us, recognizing the importance of an accurate baseline is truly the first step in that journey. Come with us as we explore how to get the most out of a wellness visit, even before you walk into your doctor’s office. And then, when you walk out that door, how do you put the information gathered in the course of your examination to most effective use? How do you make a commitment to wellness?
