Preventative measures offer healthier outcomes

A little extra attention to your health now could save you from sickness and other issues down the road. COVID-19 is to blame for more than 40 percent of Americans skipping out on medical care in 2020 according to the American Medical Association.  Of those respondents, 29 percent of people skipped out on preventative care visits and 26 percent missed outpatient general medical appointments. Researchers found that nearly 10 million people missed cancer screenings as a result of the pandemic. This covered breast, colon, and prostate cancers where early detection is crucial to fighting against it. Bellin Health President and CEO Chris Woleske says delaying care of any kind carries its own risks.

Woleske says Bellin and other hospitals are still trying to catch up the high volume of missed appointments in 2020 due to limited staff and equipment. She recommends you and your kids stay in constant contact with your doctors to keep up with any changes in your health. You can listen to the full #MyCommunityMyBellin podcast here.
