Men's Health Week June 10-June 16
The week of June 10-June 16 is designated as International Men’s Health Week. This week brings awareness to men’s health issues as well as ways to encourage healthy life choices. For instance, we take this week to highlight the importance for men to go to the doctor, get regular checkups, and getting screen tested.
Some important health screening tests for men are:
Colorectal cancer exams
Blood Pressure screening
Prostate cancer exams
Skin cancer exams
Testicular cancer exams
Men’s Health Week coincides on the same week as Father’s Day every year. The Friday of Men’s Health Week is celebrated by wearing blue.
