Father’s Day isn’t the only celebration this month for men. June is Men’s Health Month, an observance to raise awareness of preventable health problems, encourage early detection and treatment of disease, and improve overall well-being among men and boys.
Many diseases that disproportionately impact men, like heart disease and cancer, are preventable through regular doctor’s visits and healthy lifestyle choices.
If you can’t remember your last physical or if your gut feeling says something is off, it is time to do something about it. Here are 5 tips:
- Choose a primary care provider and go regularly.
- Get screening tests based on your age and family history.
- Eat healthy to prevent or manage chronic conditions.
- Be active
- Get good sleep.
