Early Detection

Practicing a healthy life-style, participating in routine health screenings, self-examinations, getting regular check-ups, and recognizing symptoms are all important factors when it comes to preventing and determining your risks for diseases in their earliest stages.

At Effingham Health System, one of our core focus areas is to provide you with wellness and patient education.  To help you better understand your risks for certain diseases, we’re connecting you with resources that are able to connect you with information, helpful prevention strategies and screening tools.  Remember though, that your primary care provider is the best resource to turn to first for information that is specific to your personal health and wellbeing because…we’re focused on what matters, YOU!
