There’s no denying the importance of prioritizing your health and wellness, especially as you reach your golden years. As you age, you are at greater risk for stroke, heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, arthritis and more. In fact, 22% of U.S. adults aged 65 and older are in fair or poor health, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Health experts believe that number is higher among the Hispanic population. That’s why it’s vital to work closely with your physician to manage chronic conditions.
