As we approach the holiday shopping season, we at Agape Health would like to take a moment to share with you a passage from Physical Activity & Health, by Jerome E Kotecki regarding being a wise health consumer. As you know we are a health-care company so this advice applies specifically for consumers seeking health products and services, however the basic principles can be tailored to fit your specific needs.
"A wise health consumer seeks reliable sources of information, critically evaluates information, selects scientifically proven products, is wary of treatments that lack scientific evidence, selects healthcare providers with great care, and understands the economic aspects of healthcare" (Kotecki, J. 2014).
Of course being a wise health consumer takes work, and research. Our goal at Agape Health is to help you in this task. We cannot overstate the importance of knowing what you're looking for and how to get it. We understand that there may be times when you need healthcare assistance, but don't have the time or opportunity to do the research. We are dedicated to meeting those challenges with and for you. If you are in Maryland or Northern Virginia call us. In the meantime may I suggest that you take time, -before the shopping rush, to become a wiser health consumer now, and call us when you need us. Have a safe and healthy holiday season!
