Just like taking a car in for an oil change or 25,000 mile checkup, men also need to take themselves to their doctor’s office to make sure everything is running smoothly. The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men. This month is an opportunity to encourage men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
