i should have been clearer...i found the UTPSTF site awhile ago but clearly the document is not a summary. its 256 pages. was looking for something a little more compact.

I'm not sure of a shorter version, but for quick reference, their website has a PDA program that has you enter the age, sex, smoking, and sexual activity status of your patient and will then pop up a list of recommended screenings.

Well it's going to be tough since there are quite a few diseases listed there, and the recomendations vary depending on patient (age vs. risk factor vs. genetics, etc.).
