Men's Health Month is a nationally celebrated month that fights to raise awareness of preventable health problems in men and make early detection and treatment a priority in the lives of men and boys.
"There is a silent health crisis in America...it's the fact that, on average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women."
Dr. David Gremillion, Men's Health Network
What can be done? According to the Men's Health Network, women are 100% more likely to go to the doctor than men. Getting an annual check-up and wellness exam can be crucial into taking control of your health.
