Taking care of your health at any age is important, but throughout the month of June, anchored by a Congressional health education program, screenings, health education and outreach activities are being pushed to inform men on what they could be at risk for and what they need to improve on as a part of Men’s Health Month.
The goal of this month is to spread awareness of early detection and treatment of health issues among men, encouraging regular check-ups and general education about overall health.
Men’s Health Month is symbolized by the color blue, with Wear Blue Day taking place June 16. People are encouraged to wear blue on this day in support of the Month, creating a better understanding of some of the issues that men face.
