Summer is here and while most of us are focused on BBQs and bathing suits, The Living Legacy Foundation is in the midst of celebrating Men’s Health Month. Anchored by a congressional health education program, Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs, media appearances, along with other health education and outreach activities. This month allows health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and families an opportunity to encourage men to seek regular medical advice and encourage early detection and treatment of disease.
In recognition, LLF would like to share ways you can encourage and support Men’s Health Month.
- Plan an event in your workplace or community to spread the word about Men’s Health and encourage participation
- Download logos, flyers and posters to share online or in your community by visiting www.menshealthmonth.org
- Bring your coworkers and/or neighbors together to encourage getting healthy and active.
- Reach out to all the male’s in your life and ask them to visit the doctor regularly.
In the midst of enjoying all the activities of summer, take the time to encourage the males in your life to get regular checkups, eat right and exercise.
