While June is designated as Men’s Health Month, the week of June 10-16 is observed as Men’s Health Week. Both were created to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

The CDC’s FastStats page on Men’s Health provides a snapshot of statistics for men across the United States that include health status, hypertension, obesity, smoking and leading causes of death.

This month, and every month, encourage the men in your life to protect their greatest asset – their health.
