In acknowledgement of Men’s Health Month, the Healthy Paso del Norte explores the data on adult men 65+ who have received recommended prevention services during the past year. Prevention services include: an influenza vaccination in the past year, a sigmoidoscopy within the past five-years and a fecal occult blood test within the past three-years, or a colonoscopy within the past 10 years.
It is important to note that data on all services in the core set are not available every year given the rotating core questions on Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). The indicator should not be assumed to cover all recommended clinical preventives services for this age group.
The Healthy Paso del Norte website is a free, publicly available resource supported by the Paso del Norte Health Foundation that includes population data and community health information for the Paso del Norte region.
