A Friendly Reminder

Last month I took care of all my health needs. I had a physical, made a visit to the OB/GYN, and had my eyes checked. It took a few weeks. but I finally got the written results of all the tests (and I'm quite healthy, thankyouverymuch).

My health insurance pays for a yearly physical and OB visit. It's hard for me to remember to schedule them, though. One of the reports I received mentioned My Health Test Reminder, a Website maintained by the College of American Pathologists which offers automated test reminder notifications.

I thought that would be really helpful, so today I registered and set up reminders for all the tests I need done on a regular basis. You can receive an email or text telling you it's time for screenings for colon or prostate cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, or Pap test, mammogram, or blood donation.

Now I'll just have to remember to look for the information!


  1. glad to know you are healthy, you are so organized.

  2. I'm happy to hear of positive results and I now wonder if there's such a service in Edmonton. I'm going to have to check into this, my life is so hectic that a friendly reminder would be nice.

    Have a great day!

  3. Congrats on the great results! Thanks for the reminder service. Great idea!
