When it comes to healthcare...

When it comes to healthcare…
If you prevent you prevail!

By Dr. Guillermo Parra

In the recent Univision Health and Beauty fair I had the chance to interact and answer questions of literally hundreds of people. Many of them recognized me from the TV show “Medical Consultation” which airs every Saturday from 10:30 to 11:00 AM at Univision 26. In such show, I have the privilege to talk about different medical topics along with Dr. Lopez and Dr. Padilla, both distinguished members of the EPIC board. Being also part of the EPIC board of doctors, I always interact and talk with my colleagues about different medical topics.

Many of the medical topics we discuss when we get together came to my mind when I was answering questions of those who came to our EPIC booth at the healthcare fair, but the one healthcare related topic that I was thinking the most about was preventive medicine. Although there’s a lot to say and write about preventive medicine, I am going to put it to you, the reader, plain and simple; preventive medicine focuses on the health of individuals, communities, and defined populations.

The goal of preventive medicine is to protect, promote, and maintain health and well-being and to prevent disease, disability, and death. After the health fair, I was the guest at our radio show “The EPIC Hour,” which is broadcasted live by KVIV 92.7 FM and 1340 AM every Thursday from 1:00 to 2:00 PM and by listening to the questions people asked, I came to the conclusion that we need to help as many people as we can understand the concept of taking a preventive approach when it comes to health care.

That is why I will encourage you, the reader, to contact and ask us questions. If you are suffering of a condition or being at risk of suffering health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure or other diseases, you can always have a preventive approach both to prevent health problems and to prevent any health problem to get worse. At EPIC, we have a highly qualified and varied group of doctors that are ready to help you.

Remember that if you prevent you prevail!
