June is Recognized as Men’s Health Month

“There is a silent health crisis in America. … It’s the fact that, on average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women.” – Dr. David Gremillion, Men’s Health Network

June is nationally recognized as Men’s Health Month. Currently, on average, men are dying almost five years younger than women. The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to bring awareness to the diseases common to men and to encourage regular screenings to help with early detection and treatment.
