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.
