This June is Men’s Health Month! Anchored by a Congressional health education program, Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs, media appearances, and other health education and outreach activities.
The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.
Did you know that women make 75% of the health care decisions for the family? Reach out to your husbands, fathers, brothers and sons about the importance of early detection and treatment of diseases as well as getting good sleep, quitting smoking, exercising more, eating healthy, and taming stress!
