HOUSTON — Too many Americans avoid going to their doctor for their annual check-up...that leads to an abundance of people living with chronic disease, and not even knowing it!

Prevention is the best medicine, and knowing your 4 core numbers could help you keep more serious illness at bay.  These numbers are your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and body mass index (BMI).

Cigna's Health Improvement Tour is coming to Houston this weekend, September 14 from 10 am - 5 pm, and September 15 from 11 am - 5 pm at the Ultimate Women's Expo at the George R. Brown Convention Center.  There you can get a free health screening, as well as coaching based on your numbers to help prevent more serious issues.  It takes only 10 minutes and no appointment is necessary.
