5 Steps to get involved


Five things you can do to be more involved 

There are many things to know and do. You can start here:

1. Keep track of your medications
 

Make a list of all your medications.
Ask your pharmacy to print a list for you.

2. Know your health needs and history

  • Ask your health team for copies of your records; keep a journal
  • Learn about health conditions

3. Find a health care home (a doctor, nurse, or clinic) 

It's best to have a regular health team: a doctor or nurse, a community health center, or an urgent care.
They can help you with your health needs. 

 

4. Work with your providers: share information, ask questions

Take your list of medications and health history when you have an appointment.
Before you go to a medical appointment, write down questions you want to ask.


5. Plan ahead 

Don't wait for a crisis.
