June is designated as Men’s Health Month and this year, the week of June 11th to 17th is celebrated as Men’s Health Week. The Friday before Father’s Day, June 15th, has been officially named Wear BLUE Day. The focus of Wear BLUE Day, sponsored by Men’s Health Network, is to raise awareness about the importance of male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives and afford women the opportunity to encourage men to do so. Men’s Health Network is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men and their families with health awareness messages where they live, work, pray, and play.
Whether it is your friend, brother, dad, boyfriend, spouse, or boss, Wear BLUE Day is a perfect opportunity to show the men in your life how much you care about them and their health by wearing blue. If June 15th is not a convenient day to celebrate Wear BLUE Day, either at work or home, schedule this special awareness day at another time.
Men’s health awareness can mean many different things. It means raising awareness of making healthy lifestyle choices, making regular annual visits to the doctor, prostate cancer/testicular cancer education, or other health issues that affect men (cardiovascular disease, skin cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, gout, and more) and starting general health conversations with their male friends, and much more.
