Wear Blue Day: Friday, June 17, 2016
Join with Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell, United States Surgeon General Vice Admiral (VADM) Vivek Murthy, MD, MBA, and the staff of the Department of Health and Human Services as they plan on participating in Wear Blue Friday.

Wear BLUE Day is celebrated every year on the Friday of Men's Health Week!
For 2016, Wear Blue Day is Friday, June 17. Friday of Men's Health Week has been officially named Wear BLUE Day.

Wear BLUE Day is celebrated by private corporations, government agencies, sports teams, and individuals to show their concern for the health and well being of boys and men.

Organizations and individuals can host a Wear BLUE day to raise awareness and money for education about men's need to seek regular checkups, or testicular cancer education, prostate cancer education, or other health issues that affect men. (cardiovascular disease, skin cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, gout, and more.)

Wear BLUE Day is a part of the year-round Wear BLUE® awareness campaign that was created by Men's Health Network to raise awareness about the importance of male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives, and give women an opportunity to encourage them to do so. Many people take advantage of less stringent work attire to show their support of men's health by wearing blue.

The social media hashtag  #ShowUsYourBlue has grown tremendously over the years.

Wear BLUE Day and Men's Health Week are sponsored by  Men's Health Network. Men's Health Network is an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to reach boys, men and their families with health awareness messages where they live, work, pray, and play.
