How does Trails to Health work?
In one affordable package, you will receive screening tests, blood work, fitness testing, a complete physical exam and health consultation performed by the healthcare professionals at Pioneers Medical Center.
Once enrolled in Trails to Health, you will complete blood work and any appropriate screening tests before confirming your appointment with your healthcare provider. Your appointment will include a physical exam, discussion about your current health and a review of your blood work and test results. With all the necessary information available during your appointment, you and your healthcare provider can begin your partnership by setting customized goals and identifying the steps necessary to improve your health.
As a participant in Trails to Health, your progress toward your health goals is tracked and supported by feedback throughout the year.
