Project Description

Preventative care

Preventative care is a proactive step to help you avoid and detect health problems; often before you notice any symptoms. At PolyCan Health Centre we will have age specific preventative healthcare programs for babies, children (young through adult), men, women and seniors.

Screenings can include:

  • Blood pressure screening
  • Cholesterol screening
  • Colorectal cancer screening
  • Diabetes (Type 2) screening
  • Diet counselling
  • Hepatitis B and C screening
  • HIV screening
  • Immunization vaccines
  • Lung cancer screening
  • Obesity screening and counselling
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening

Preventative care services can be a key component of your healthcare and wellness plan to keep you and your family healthy.
