Preventive Care

Routine preventive care can lead to prevention or early detection of illness, resulting in better health outcomes, improved quality of life and reduced costs. Examples include cancer screenings, immunizations, and measurement of blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol. Based on recommendations of the United States Preventive Services Task Force, the Kent State of Wellness will develop campaigns to increase health literacy, awareness, and engagement of our students and employees in preventive care based on risk levels.
