■Summary
 This time, we conducted a survey on the attitudes of managers regarding health management among 106 managers who undergo a complete medical checkup once a year.
Approximately half of the business owners felt uneasy about the “annual medical checkup” alone, and some said, “I think the health condition will change in a few months.” In addition, more than half of them expressed their anxiety that “business operations will be delayed” and “business continuation will be difficult” in case they fall down.
 Therefore, when asked about the use of “preventive medical services that allow you to work on health maintenance with a personal doctor,” about 70% of business owners expressed interest. For managers working on the front lines, maintaining good health is considered basic, but it has become apparent that it is difficult to find time to devote to healthcare. In addition, for managers who feel a sense of crisis that there is a high risk that if they fall down, their business and the lives of their employees will also fall together, it is necessary to have a method of working on health management other than the “annual medical checkup”. Isn’t there
