June is Men’s Health Month! Did you know that 81% of men remember the make and model of their first car, yet barely half remember their last trip to the doctor?
There are several ways to take control of your health, including eating right, exercising regularly, and making preventive health a priority. Preventive healthcare can help you avoid illness and detect problems before you notice any symptoms – helping you stay healthy. Establishing care with a primary care provider is your first step in prioritizing preventive health, as he or she will identify screenings and exams recommended for your age and specific health history. Below, we explore men’s health risks, lifestyle tips and recommendations by age group. If you have questions on any of these recommendations or would like to schedule an appointment with one of our 13 primary care providers, please give our team a call at 641.672.3360.
