Men’s Health Month

June is Men’s Health Month. Healthcare workers say while there are specific diseases and illnesses men are more prone to get, they are less likely to go to the doctor for sickness or wellness checks.”They’re also less likely to see a doctor regularly, especially just for a well check, ya see, people come to us when they’re sick thankfully, but we like to see people when they’re well so that we can keep them well,” Kay Greer, Advance Practice RN at CHI Saint Joseph London, said.Healthcare workers are encouraging men to go to the doctor during Men’s Health Month, or any time, for a wellness check that could end up being lifesaving.
