Program about routine checkups scheduled

Schneck Foundation plans to presents “The Doctor Will Hear You Now” with guest speaker Dr. David Hartung from 6 to 7 p.m. April 13 in the Schneck Auditorium at 411 W. Tipton St. in Seymour.

Hartung with Schneck Primary Care will discuss the importance of routine checkups and how they can help you prevent future health care problems.

Traditional annual checkups have involved running tests and looking for things that might be wrong, particularly if you have a current health problem or symptoms that might indicate that you are ill, according to a news release from the foundation.

However, if you’re healthy and have no signs of illness, you may still want to schedule regular checkups with your doctor. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services specifically recommends annual well-woman visits, which include a Pap test, pelvic exam and preventive care.

To make your reservation for this free program, contact Natalie Harpe at 812-524-4247 or nharpe@schneckmed.org. Call early as space is limited.
