Promoting Preventive Services Report
The percentage of adults up-to-date on clinical preventive services (screenings, immunizations and counseling) is strikingly low. Only 1 in 4 of the nearly 55 million Americans between 50 and 64 receives the core set of recommended preventive services. CDC, AARP and the AMA provided leadership to the development of the Promoting Preventive Services Report and interactive website to shine light on the increasing access and use of preventive services for this age group. Baseline data (national, state, regional and selected local) are easily accessed, successful strategies and calls to action are highlighted, and extensive resources and references are provided.
