Yes, there is a month dedicated to the health of men, but the question is whether men dedicate time to their health, or not. The answer is that very few pay due attention to not only their health but to prevent diseases. Because of social tabu, and even by shame, many men stop consulting the doctor for ailments, discomforts or conditions that may be affecting them.
That is why there is a month dedicated to the health of gentlemen and that month is June! Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country and its purpose is to create awareness and to encourage men and boys to seek early detection and treatment of different health issues. The message includes also to exhort them to learn more about preventable problems.
Around the country are offered screenings, health fairs, workshops, outreach initiatives, and health education seminars to invite more and more men to take good care of their health and wellness.
If you know a man that could use some of this information, please share it with him. It’s important for all of us to use this time to talk openly about preventable health issues, and of course, it’s imperative to include your kids in the conversation.
According to experts, the information and early education about health, prevention, diseases, and common questions, is very important as part of a family routine, and since we are already dedicating this whole month to men’s health, then let’s use it also to educate the little ones.
So, guys! if you haven’t seen a doctor in a while if there is something that is bothering you with your health but you haven’t found the time or the opportunity to discuss it with a physician, here is the time!
June is all men’s health month, and the best to honor it is by talking, informing, educating, and addressing any questions or issues you may have about your own health!
