JUNE is Men’s Health Month! Instituted in 1994, Men’s health month is a time to spread awareness about disease prevention for men. Men are far less likely than women to go to the doctor for regular checkups. Yet men are also more likely to be diagnosed with cancer than women and die at higher rates from 9 of the top 10 causes of death. Men also typically die 5 years younger than women. Early detection of health issues can help improve the health and life expectancy of men.
