Next week is Men's Health Week 2012!

Do you know when Men's Health Week is?  It's easy to remember.  It's the week up to and including Father's Day.  This year it's June 11-17, 2012.  Actually, the whole month of June is designated as Men's Health Month.

Here is a link about Men's Health Month and Men's Health Week from the Men's Health Network - a great resource for men's health advocacy.

On Tuesday, June 12th I'll be hosting a Men's Health Week table in the Concord Hospital cafeteria in Concord, NH from 8am to 2pm.  There will be free munchies, swag, brochures about men's health conditions as well as injury prevention materials (check out this prior post on young men and "unintentional injury").  If you are reading this and can drop by please do so to support our efforts!

Going into the week here are my public service messages:

Men - Get medical care and be responsible for your health - not only for you but for your loved ones too.

Women - Tell the men in your lives to get medical care and be advocates for their health needs.
