Kellen Wilson encourages all women between the ages of 18 to 39 to be aware of health care guidelines recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

If you've ever had the uneasy feeling that you should be taking better care of your health but you're not sure how to go about it, Kellen Wilson's article may help to fill that gap for you. She gives the government guidelines for visits to your doctor, dentist, optometrist and audiologist.

Kellen details the government's recommended time tables for vaccinations, dental hygiene, eye exams and hearing tests and self-examination of the skin for abnormalities. This age group of women also needs to pay special attention to reproductive health, via pelvic exams, pap tests and HIV tests.

"Starting in our late teens and as we age, there is a recommended regimen that heightens awareness of our health and well being. Different health screenings and immunizations are outlined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as guidelines for health care particular to women."
