Leadville 9Health Fair Offers Baseline Screenings

Baseline. This simple compound word can mean a lot when it comes to good health. By definition, it means a starting point used for comparisons. Therefore, having those baseline “numbers” can help physicians diagnose changes or on-the-horizon situations that can be better understood when they have something to compare it to.
