Men’s Health Awareness, Education, and Prevention.
We end June with a special awareness dedication to all men in honor of Men’s Health Education and Awareness Month. This special observance, which was passed into law in 1994 aims to educate the public and to raise awareness of preventable illnesses affecting the health of both boys and adult males.
The different activities organized by public, private and religious organizations during this month, seek to encourage Men’s Health Awareness overall by recommending the male population to get regular checkups and medical advice to increase early detection and treatment.
According to experts, the need to shed light on men’s health awareness is a growing
concern. Men’s health is experiencing a widespread crisis in America, affecting all communities, ethnic and economic groups. According to the Men’s Health Network, this crisis is due to a lack of awareness, weak health education and culturally induced behavioral patterns in both work and personal lifestyles. We hope to highlight the importance that regular health screenings have, and why we should encourage the men in our lives to get them.
