You’ve probably given a lot of thought to your health lately. It’s no wonder when you’re amid a worldwide pandemic. Only many people are more focused on COVID than they are on the everyday threats to their good health: Things like high blood pressure, colon cancer and osteoporosis. And while we all should be aware of the virus and its variants, our guest knows that the fact is, there are probably other health threats out there that can be just as, or even more, dangerous to your health.

She stopped by the studio today to remind us of the importance of those annual screenings that we may have put on the back burner in the face of COVID-19.
