This new initiative to encourages our neighbors to ‘Make the Appointment’ and commit to scheduling, and following through, on their own health screenings. Whether it’s a mammogram, a colonoscopy, a prostate exam, or any other health screening, I hope my story inspires you to commit to putting your own health first. Sign the pledge and share with friends and family to remind them to #Maketheappointment.
