Men's Health Month

Due to a lack of awareness, poor health education, and culturally induced behavior patterns in their work and personal lives, men’s health and well-being are deteriorating steadily. Simply stated – men typically live sicker and die younger than women. Therefore, Mid Dakota Clinic wants to recognize June as Men's Health Month which is anchored by National Men's Health Week – June 12-18.

Men’s Health Month is a special observance passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994. Its purpose is to raise awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection of disease among boys and men. It also encourages them to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

On Friday, June 16th, join in Wear Blue Day to show concern about male health and well-being. Encourage men to live longer and healthier lives by scheduling annual visits with a doctor, making healthier lifestyle choices, and becoming educated on the diseases that impact them the most. Be sure to post your participation, no matter how big or small, by using the social media hashtag #ShowUsYourBlue
