June is Men’s Health Month

Happy June! Did you know that it’s Men’s Health Month? We all know that sometimes men and boys need a little nudge to go to the doctor or pay more attention to their health.

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to encourage education and prevention of preventable health problems and promote early detection and treatment of disease that might arise at different stages of life. 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.

Below are a few great resources to help kick off some healthy lifestyles for men:
