Men’s Health Month

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

JUNE is Men’s Health Month! Instituted in 1994, Men’s health month is a time to spread awareness about disease prevention for men. Men are far less likely than women to go to the doctor for regular checkups. Yet men are also more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than women and die at higher rates from 9 of the top 10 causes of death. Men also typically die 5 years younger than women. Early detection of health issues can help improve the health and life expectancy of men.

Men’s Health Week

The week before Father’s day, June 14 – 20, individuals are encouraged to wear blue in support of Men’s Health Week. So share your photos with the hashtag #ShowUsYourBlue and help spread awareness about Men’s Health.
