National Men’s Health Week, which runs from June 10-16, heightens awareness of preventable health problems and encourages early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. The week gives healthcare providers, public policymakers, the media and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers a number of resources and steps men can take to improve their health including:

  • Get good sleep
  • Quit smoking
  • Exercise often
  • Eat healthy
  • Manage stress
  • See your primary care provider regularly
