Preventive Care & Wellness

Eating right, exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and not smoking are the simple ways you can reduce your risk of chronic diseases as you age-but we know this is often easier said than done.

That's why our Carilion Clinic primary care providers make preventive care and wellness a top priority. Depending on your age, gender and individual risk factors (such as family history), our primary care providers will order periodic health screenings for you-because early diagnosis offers the best odds of a cure.

Our Community Health Education programs offer a wide variety of classes, events, and support groups to help create and maintain a healthy community. Topics include nutrition, exercise, cardiovascular wellness, women's health, cancer prevention, and many more.
