The joke is that men take better care of their cars than their health. But it’s not funny. To help encourage men—and the women who love them—take their health more seriously, Congress has designated June as Men’s Health Month.
The purpose is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. Throughout June, health care providers, public policy makers, the media and the public are encouraging men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
How can you help? The Men’s Health Network is glad you asked. The organization has a list of fun, interesting things to do in support of Men’s Health Month on its website. Check them out!
