Self-management is you personally taking control of your health. It is a good investment and can help you do the things you want to do. To begin, you should know the basics about medication safety and doing a review of your medications with your healthcare team. Practice makes perfect. Only you can make the decision to get involved and stay involved in your healthcare.

Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Here's something to consider:
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at a large group of retired elderly, nonsmoking men who were followed for 12 years. Those who walked less than 1 mile/day were almost 2 times more likely to die from any cause than those who walked more than 2 miles/day. So, let's get to walking! Every day!
