June is Men’s Health Month! This time is dedicated to raising awareness of preventable health problems men may encounter through health education, fundraising and advocacy efforts promoting early detection and treatment of disease.
Here’s how you can get involved:
Wear blue. The Men’s Health Network created the initiative to support men’s health efforts. Learn more here.
Spread the word. Encourage your male family members, friends and coworkers to attend annual doctor appointments and seek medical advice when necessary.
Get active. Organize a fitness event to get the men in your life moving.
Know the risks and symptoms of conditions that commonly affect men. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and prostate cancer are among the most important health issues facing men today. Learn how CyberKnife Center of Chicago treats prostate cancer.
