Say yes to learning.
When you don’t need to see the doctor but you just want to know certain health-related information - such as what a skin tag looks like, or how best to avoid osteoporosis, or what the dietary recommendations are for a specific age group - Minerva can provide you with useful medical information in our Health Education center. Find out information about the drugs you are taking and which other drugs or substances might not go well with them. In the Health Education Center you can learn about diabetes, breast cancer, and the relationship of smoking and heart disease. And if you are concerned about not having a Living Will, the Minerva Health Education Center has the Advance Directive that your state provides to you free of charge. With Minerva, learning more is incredibly easy.
