Mission:

Self chec is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing the best and most comprehensive free “keeping healthy” one-to-one communicated tools to help protect you and those you care about from cancers, heart disease, diabetes and obesity; diseases that are often preventable, treatable and curable. Most people are reactive when it comes to their health; they seek out health info 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 cancers and other chronic diseases, so they can reduce their odds of getting sick in the first place.

Reviews for Self Chec Inc

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 5 stars  

Self Chec is a lifesaver - literally. As a stage 4 head and neck cancer survivor I cannot stress the importance of early detection. I was lucky - but "luck" is not enough. Please pay attention to this website and the valuable tools it offers. Self Chec is a reminder to all of us that we can take control of our health - and with early detection many cancers can be treated and/or cured. Thank you Self Check - Thank you Joan - for your wisdom, dedication and commitment to the health and well being of all......

I've been receiving Self Chec's notices for quite a while. Even through the busiest days they always remind me to stop and remember what is really important, my health and that of my family. What a great organization!

Self-Chec does what a great friend or family member does, helps you to take care of yourself. Not only are monthly reminders sent out, but everyone is invited to include those near and dear in this wonderfully caring community.

A truly great organization. We have friends who would not be healthy today without the help of Self chec. They are life savers, without exaggeration.

I didn't realize how "I" could make a difference in my own healthcare. That's the "Self" in Self Chec. Too often we wait for doctors to catch problems, but Self Chec has convinced me that I am an equal partner in my own health future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Self chec is a lone leader on the prevention side of cancer-focused health. Centered around a healthy lifestyle that helps prevents cancer in the first place and encourages early detection to increase survivability is the closest thing we have to a cure right now. And that makes Self chec more important to those suffering today than a cure that lives in the future ever could.

Self Chec has the best kinds of missions: prevention. So much tragedy could be avoided if more people took the easy steps to keep cancer and disease from taking hold!

Not only does Self Chec have stand for a wonderful cause - prevention of cancer and other chronic diseases - it offers wonderful tools to the public to help realize its goal.

Joan, the founder of Self Chec, is warm and caring but also forward thinking about creating new tools and resources for people as we move deeper into the digital and virtual age. I am honored to be a part of the team that created Self Chec's inaugural hackathon to develop digital tools to help prevent breast cancer and look forward to future hackathons which will directly address other cancers and diseases.

It takes a special person and a special organization to fully embrace this kind of innovation and it deeply reflects Joan and Self Chec's dedication to make the world a healthier place by empowering people to make better choices.

I can't say enough about the importance of Self Chec Inc. This non-profit brings forth such awareness about the importance of prevention in health. It is that little nudge we all need to put our wellness first. As the owner of a Pilates and Barre Studio, I work everyday to help people understand the importance of movement but it is that extra step, and that pro active attitude that can mean the difference between life and death. Kudos to Joan Peckolick for her work with this amazing organization and for making us all look a little deeper into our habits of daily living!

Self Chec is quite a bit different than most health care sites in that it focuses completely on prevention. It is easy to navigate and contains critical information for users to avoid the traps that lead to major diseases and illnesses.

The site is visually appealing, which is uncommon in this sector. It presents information in a very readable manner.

I have recommended this site to friends and and they too have enjoyed the benefits.

Self Chec is a special non-profit that not only focuses on your well-being, but can literally help you have a healthier future. We often forget how important our health is and Self Chec reminds us to take vital steps towards a better tomorrow! We ignore small signs about our health and often hope it is nothing, but Self Chec reminds us to take a closer look at ourselves! Not only can it help us, but it can help our family and friends. It's an extraordinary organization that is dedicated to help the well-being of everyone. Let's help it grow and reminds everyone that prevention is the cure!

Self Chec is a wonderful organization because it aims to help everyone; It is constantly promoting tips and tricks to keep readers and their families and friends healthy and strong. I am only 22 years old, but because of the articles posted by this organization, I know how to prevent certain diseases like cancer and diabetes that could affect me later on in life. I also have been sharing the information that I've learned through Self Chec with my parents and grandparents to keep them healthy. After learning about the little things that we can do to stay healthy, we've been committed to eating healthier and exercising more often. Self Chec is a great organization and it has helped me and my family gain the information we needed to lead healthier lives.
