    Spare Change: Simple Health Strategies for the 50+ Set

    Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

    The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently released checklists for men and women on how to stay healthy after 50. AHRQ fuses sound medical advice with a reader-friendly format that features a “Screening Test Record” form and a run-down of daily steps to good health and preventive medications. A few unisex tips that were featured on both lists were eating a healthy diet, receiving annual immunizations, and asking your doctor for high cholesterol and blood pressure screenings. These tips will help those of you over 50, and probably the under-50s as well, improve and maintain your current health. For more information, visit AHRQ’s website for the Stay Healthy at 50+Checklists for Your Health.
