The next section automatically assesses your overall health and risk profile based on algorithms and AI that utilize the latest medical standards and research. Our algorithms then recommend health topics that would be relevant based on your profile for your personalized health pages.
If you wish you can select new topics or override some of the suggestions and chose your own topics from a list of sixty different categories.
