How good are you when it comes to having your annual checkups? Many of us women only see doctors when we visit the OB-GYN (and far too many of us don’t even do that), while men tend to wait until something is wrong before they don that embarrassing paper gown.

Are you on it when it comes to the doctor? Or do you have to have boils on your face before you give in and make an appointment? If you are without traditional insurance, have you taken advantage of Medicaid and other free/low-cost options for obtaining health services?
