WHAT IS A WELL+BEING EXAM?
This exam is an in-depth health assessment and personalized follow-up consultation with your physician. Together with your doctor, you'll celebrate what you are doing well and discover health risks that need to be addressed.
WHY GET A WELL+BEING EXAM?
It is important to get a physical exam every year to stay on top of your health and help prevent future illness. While physical exams give you a basic picture of your overall health, a Well-Being Exam from Health by Design gives you much more. This exam takes a holistic view of your health by offering mental health screenings as well as physical health examinations. With our state-of-the-art technology, we can also provide more insight into your labs and blood work so that we can detect potential issues earlier than other physical exams. Our professionals also work with you to discuss physical therapy, diet and nutrition options tailored to your needs.

February is American Heart Health Month, a time to pay special attention to understanding, preventing, and treating heart disease - the leading cause of death in the nation. Fortunately, heart disease is preventable, and there are many things people can do to reduce their risk.
Caring for yourself is essential to keep your heart healthy. The good news is that The Fund and our partners at Health by Design can help!
DID YOU KNOW STRESS CAN INCREASE YOUR RISK FOR HEART DISEASE?
Your body's response to stress is supposed to protect you. But, if it's constant, it can harm you. The hormone cortisol is released in response to stress. Studies suggest that high levels of cortisol from long-term stress can increase blood cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and blood pressure. These are common risk factors for heart disease.

DID YOU KNOW HEART DISEASE PREVENTION STARTS IN CHILDHOOD?
You may think of heart disease as a problem for adults, not for your young children. But the CDC says obesity affects 1 out of every 5 U.S. children. Diet and exercise habits started in childhood can start a lifetime of heart health or heart damage. Click here to learn more.
