Men’s Health Month

Posted by on June 1st, 2017 Posted in: General, Mental Health, Minority Health Concerns, Public Health

During June, the Office of Minority Health of the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS OMH) invites you to join the observance of Men’s Health Month and the efforts to encourage men and boys to take steps to live healthier.

On average, men in the U.S. die five and a half years earlier than women and die at higher rates from 9 of the top 10 leading causes of death. This Men’s Health Month, OMH will encourage men to take important steps to improve their health, such as eating healthy food, staying active, quitting smoking, getting regular checkups and taking care of their mental health.

OMH also invites you to join @MinorityHealth for a #MensHealthMonth Twitter Chat at 1-2 PM EDT on June 6.  The chat is co-hosted by SaludToday, the Men’s Health Network, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and ChooseMyPlate.gov. Follow the conversation with the hashtags #SaludTues #MensHealthMonth.
