KOSI 101 and HealthONE Women's Care
want you to be "in the know" on how to keep you
and your loved ones healthy.
This time of year is about a lot of things – family, friends, celebrations, food gifts – and for a lot of us, extra stress as we try to fit everything in. HealthONE Women’s Care wants to remind you that even in this busy time of year, it’s important to put your health at the forefront. Here are a few things that you can do to improve your health before 2013 starts!
Schedule your 2012 annual visit
If you haven’t had your annual gynecologic exam yet this year, try to fit it in this month. These check-ups can detect pre-cancerous cells, or changes in the cervix that can lead to cancer. The HealthONE Women’s Care Network has an extensive list of OB/GYNs, midwives and family practice providers for your well-woman care needs. Go to www.HealthONEWomensCare.com to find a provider near you.

How to Choose the Right Women’s Care Provider for You
There are a number of factors that you should consider when looking for your health care provider. HealthONE Women’s Care has a variety of physicians and midwives for your women’s health needs, so it’s important to think through a few questions before choosing the right provider for you:
• Do you plan to have children/more children? If so, you will want to consider your obstetrical needs as well as your general gynecologic health.
• Does your care provider’s philosophy of care and approach to your health match with yours?
• Is the care provider in a location that’s convenient for you? Do the practice’s office hours work with your schedule?
