Focusing on Preventive Care During a Pandemic

Thursday, April 15

MetroHealth Presenter: Erron L. Bell, MD

Keeping up to date on preventative screenings and wellness visits is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. Screenings can detect a variety of medical conditions early on, while they’re still highly treatable. Adults and kids benefit from annual check-ups, screenings and immunizations.

Dr. Bell will talk about what you need to do to take charge of your health during a pandemic and answer some of your questions.

Attendees may submit questions ahead of time.

Space is limited and preregistration is required.

Can't attend live? You should still register! We'll send out the recording after the webinar to all registrants.
