Men’s Health Week/Month (June)

Men's Health Month Advancing Health Equity for Boys and Men of Color

During Men’s Health Month, we are raising awareness about health disparities that affect boys and men of color. And we are also raising the dialogue on efforts to ensure that all men achieve better health outcomes. This June, encourage the men in your lives to take a powerful step towards good health by making healthier food choices, avoiding smoking, staying active, reducing risk for injury and scheduling a check-up.

Men and their families may still be eligible to enroll in affordable health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace by qualifying for a special enrollment period or through Medicaid. Visit www.HealthCare.gov for more information.

Men’s Health Disparities

The health status of racial and ethnic minority men has lagged far too long behind the general population, despite our nation’s vast advances in science, public health and health care.
