Preventive Health Q & A

What is preventive health?

Preventive health care helps you stay healthy and avoid disease instead of just treating you when you get sick. The HAPI Medical Center team’s preventive health services stop you and your family members from having preventable medical conditions.

Their interventions reduce your risk of suffering the pain, misery, expense, and inconvenience of enduring numerous health problems ranging from Type 2 diabetes to infectious diseases like hepatitis and COVID-19.

What preventive health services are available?

HAPI Medical Center offers wide-ranging preventive health services, including:

Annual physicals

Annual physicals are routine exams you have each year to check health indicators like your heart rate, breathing, lung and heart sounds, reflexes, and blood pressure. The HAPI Medical Center team also offers specialized physicals such as well-woman, well-man, and well-child exams.

Disease screening

Screening detects certain diseases early in their development when treatment is easier and more successful. HAPI Medical Center offers screening for:

  • Breast, colorectal, prostate, and cervical cancers
  • Dementia (using the Mini-Cog© screening tool)
  • Mental health disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoporosis (using DEXA bone scans)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

During a physical exam, your provider also looks for unusual lumps or abnormal lesions on your skin that could be signs of cancer.


Immunizations contain harmless versions of diseases like measles, polio, and hepatitis. They enable your immune system to identify harmful microorganisms and create antibodies that kill them.

Most preventive health procedures are simple and quick and usually cause minimal, if any, discomfort. Yet, they can help you avoid the potentially devastating consequences of having diseases like cancer and diabetes.

What other measures boost preventive health?

One of the most significant aspects of preventive health is addressing lifestyle problems. Poor diet, excess body weight, unmanaged stress, inadequate exercise, and bad habits like smoking can cause or worsen many life-altering and potentially fatal diseases.

The HAPI Medical Center team works with you to develop solutions to these problems. They support you with all the measures you can take to improve your health, including:

  • Losing weight
  • Giving up smoking
  • Exercising regularly
  • Finding ways to relax
  • Cutting down your alcohol intake
  • Eating a healthy, nutritious diet

You can improve your health and well-being with your provider’s support and advice. A healthier, stronger body is more capable of dealing with infections and avoiding disease.
