According to the Men’s Health Network, men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death in the U.S. and die almost six years earlier than women.
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.
