Abstract

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), clinical preventive services (CPS) can prevent disease or detect disease early, when the treatment is more effective (CDC, 2015). These services include screenings for chronic conditions, immunizations for diseases such as influenza and pneumonia, and counseling about personal health behaviors. Every representative age group needs not only the provision of these preventive services but also the proper access to care. Over the years, different initiatives have been brought forth to do just this.
