June is Men’s Health Month, a national observance used to raise awareness about health care for men and focus on encouraging boys, men, and their families to practice and implement healthy living decisions, such as exercising and eating healthy.
- Men in the US die on average 5 years earlier than women.
- Men in the US die at higher rates from the three leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer & unintentional injuries.
During Men’s Health Month, encourage men to take control of their health, and for families to teach young boys healthy habits throughout childhood.
Wear blue in the month of June to support men's health.
