    Health Notes

    Men’s Health Month
    June is National Men’s Health Month, a celebration dedicated to improving the health and well-being of men. Although healthy eating and active living are pertinent to both men and women, Men’s Health Month provides an opportunity to raise awareness on how these topics may affect men differently. During this observation, we can focus on encouraging men to take the steps needed for longer and healthier lives. For more info, visit CDC’s National Men’s Health Week page.

A Man’s Guide to Healthy Aging is an authoritative resource for them, and for older men, as well. In collaboration with a variety of medical experts, the authors provide a comprehensive guide to healthy aging from a man’s perspective.
