HS OMH in Observance of Men's Health Month
On average, men in the U.S. die five and a half years earlier than women and die at higher rates from 9 of the top 10 leading causes of death. This month, OMH is encouraging men to take important steps to improve their health, such as eating healthy food, staying active, quitting smoking, getting regular checkups and taking care of their mental health.
