Preventative Care

Premier Physician Network providers answer frequently asked questions about preventative care.

How can someone find accurate information about an outbreak?

If you are concerned about an outbreak or have heard there is one affecting your area, it’s best to get make sure you get information from reliable sources, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say. 

Locally, you could check your health department’s website or call the health department. For national-level information, the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionOff Site Icon (CDC) is a reliable website you could use to find information.

Talk to your doctor about where you could find accurate information about an outbreak.
