June is Men’s Health Month

Prevention and early detection are causes we at the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation can stand behind; which is why we support Men’s Health Month. 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 and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

Family farm

Regular checkups and age-appropriate screenings can improve your health and extend your life. Members of high risk groups, or those with a family history of a disease, should consult their health care provider about the need for earlier screening. Here are some checkup and screening guidelines:
