Preventive Health Guide

It is important to be proactive with your health. Preventive care can help you manage your health and find any potential health concerns early.

Johns Hopkins EHP has identified some small steps you can take. Many tests, screenings and visits are important for children and adults. Review the health care services below for the ones you and your family may need.

Note: The information on this page is a general guideline. In addition to your age and sex, your lifestyle, family history and risk factors will determine which services are right for you and how often you need them. Please discuss your personal care plan with your primary care provider.

For more support and personal results, fill out your Health Risk Assessment. Your results will provide deeper insights into your health care needs and will enable EHP to reach out with education, resources and support.
