New Guidelines for Preventive Medicine in Adults: An Integrative Approach to Prevent Cancer, Stroke, Heart Disease, Infections and Other Diseases of Aging
Prevention is the essence of wellness and good health. Although preventive medicine has focused traditionally on children and younger adults, current medical thinking is that adults— and especially older adults—also need specific attention to preventive medicine to minimize the chance of acute and chronic illnesses. This series with UCSF experts on preventive medicine, integrative medicine, and internal medicine reviews current evidence on the prevention of cancer, heart disease and stroke, infections, and other diseases of aging. Learn about the latest evidence about nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle practices, vaccines for adults, and common screening tests to prevent illness.
