Self Chec, a 501(c)(3) organization, founded National Self-Check Month to spread their simple mission: Provide the best and most comprehensive one-to-one tools and resources— free of charge — to help protect you and those you care about from cancer, heart disease and other chronic diseases that are often preventable and treatable if found early enough.
In 2018, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Self-Check Month to be observed annually in February.
About Self Chec
Most people are reactive when it comes to their health; they seek out information when they are already sick, or a friend has been diagnosed. Self Chec does the opposite, it nudges the public about the importance of proactive prevention, early detection and wellness care of chronic diseases, so they can reduce their odds of getting sick in the first place.
