Men's Health Week
What is happening
Men's Health Week will be celebrated June 10-16 ending on Father's Day. During this time, health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based community organizations, and government agencies, plan activities that focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, and their families. Men's Health Month is built on the pillars of Awareness - Prevention - Education - Family.
"Awareness periods like Men's Health Month are crucial in helping to educate the public on health issues and health disparities impacting men," says Patricia R. Fernandez President and CEO of The Bedford Stuyvesant Family Health Center in Brooklyn. "Just like your car is triggered to remind you when it's time to change your oil or get it serviced, the week of June 10th should serve as a mental trigger for men to get their body checked."
