June is National Men's Health Month. This month's awareness is to help men become more aware of the health problems that can be prevented with early detection and treatment among men and young boys. The latest statistics show that the health of men in our lives needs vast improvement. It is proven that men die 6 years younger than their female companions.
The Coalition for Health and Wellness will be honoring the men in our lives by having a kick off to their upcoming men's health program. The kick off event is planned for June 20th at Gravely Nature Preserve starting at 9:00am. Canoeing down the Smith River, male friendly healthy cooking demonstartions, and guided trail walks are just the start of the fun!
So come out to help celebrate men's health and bring the special men in your life out to this exciting event! Space is limited and registration is required. To register or for questions, contact Diane Sawyer, HCI Program Director, at 276-956-2983 ext. 301.
