TRACK YOUR HEALTH
Every person has a health history beginning at birth. Unfortunately, most of us do not maintain records of our health or see any reason to do so until it is urgently needed. Usually at the time we receive medical care—anything from a routine checkup or immunization to non-emergency surgery or an emergency room visit, we think we will always remember every detail any time we need to recall it. Often, however vital information is lost or forgotten and inaccessible when we need it most.
If you have ever sat in a doctor’s office wracking your brain about either your own health history or your family’s health history, then you will appreciate having the information you need readily available after having put together your own Personal Health Information book using the simple step-by-step instructions and forms included in this book.
NOW is the time to begin tracking your health information, and this book is your guide. You’ll find it fun, inspiring, easy to understand, and it will give you peace of mind.
