June Is Men’s Health Month

June is Men's Health Month

Celebrated each year during June, Men’s Health Month brings awareness to the health issues all men face. The month is dedicated to enriching men’s health and wellness by raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

Did you know that men are less likely than women to go to the doctor? It’s true! In fact, studies show that women go to the doctor twice as much as men.

Even if you don’t feel sick, if it important to see your doctor regularly and schedule age-appropriate screenings. These simple steps can improve your health and reduce premature death and disability. That’s why now is a great time for men to schedule an annual checkup with their doctor.

We encourage all men—young and old— to see their doctors, practice routine prevention tips (including how to improve heart health), eat well , exercise, and seek help for substance use disorder and/or mental health issues.

One way to stay strong and take care of those who are important to you is to take care of yourself.
