June is National Men’s Health Month!
Healthier Men Live Happier, Longer Lives.
June is Men’s Health Month! Men’s Health Month is built on the pillars of Awareness, Prevention, Education, and Family. Men’s Health Month is credited with the increase in wellness activities for boys and men in all areas of the public and private sectors, resulting in better health outcomes and longer life expectancy. During this time, health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based organizations, government agencies, and other interested groups plan activities that focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, and their families.
Anchored by a Congressional health education program, Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country. With thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe, Men’s Health Month helps men and boys take action to be healthy and safe, and encourages them to make their health a priority.
As part of Men’s Health Month, the week leading up to Fathers Day, June 13-19, is Men’s Health Week. During this week, individuals, families, communities, and others work to promote healthy living among men and boys.
Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are sponsored by Men’s Health Network, which maintains a list of experts and spokespersons on all areas of male health and wellness. For free resources to help boys and men live healthier lives are available in both English and Spanish, visit the Men’s Health Resource Center.
