    REGISTER by August 26th to receive your Self-Care Essentials Book.

    For employees covered under the Pima County medical plan.

    Earn up to 100 Healthy Lifestyle Activity Points by completing the program activities.​ No one has as much to gain from your health as you do. In an age of soaring health care costs, educating yourself on how to best care for your health and the health of your family can be challenging.

    By participating in the 6-week Self-Care Essentials program you will answer five basic questions about what it means to be a smart healthcare consumer:

    • What is a real medical emergency?
    • Should I see or call my provider?
    • Can I treat this problem myself?
    • If so, what should I do?
    • What can I do ahead of time to prepare my visit?

    By registering for this program you will also receive a copy of the Self-Care Essentials book designed to help you better manage your own health and get the most from your healthcare provider. You will also learn how to utilize or secure a Primary Care Physician (PCP), complete your Aetna online Personal Health Record (PHR) and complete weekly Self-Care activities.  Once registered, you will receive a welcome email outlining the program details and activities that you will need to complete for credit.
