MEN’S HEALTH WEEK
Men, this week is for you! The week leading up to Father’s Day focuses on men’s health. When it comes to a healthier body and mind, prevention is critical. Many of the risk factors for disease are preventable. Learning what to look for and what changes to make, can help lower those risks.
Men’s Health Week takes place during Men’s Health Month and is strategically placed during the week of Father’s Day when we’re thinking of those important men in our lives. During the same week, Wear BLUE Day gives us an opportunity to schedule events and raise awareness for men’s causes, too.
Encourage the men in your life to keep scheduled checkups, learn their risk factors and start or maintain a healthy lifestyle. Scheduling screenings as recommended will help detect disease early, making intervention possible.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Visit with the men in your life about their health. Find low cost and free screenings near you. Attend a health clinic or start the health program recommended by your physician. Learn more about Men’s Health Week at www.menshealthmonth.org and use #MensHealthWeek to share on social media.
