Control the impact of risk factors
on your health and at all stages of life

Preventive and wellness medicine is a branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention of illness and the promotion of health and well-being.

It involves taking steps to maintain good health, prevent diseases and injuries, and manage chronic conditions. This can include lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and not smoking, as well as preventive medical care, such as vaccinations, screenings, and check-ups.

The goal of preventive and wellness medicine is to help people stay healthy and prevent the onset of chronic conditions, rather than treating illness after it has occurred.
