B.A.F.F.L.E.D. For Men

Men's Health Week!

Gents, this week is all about you.  We are highlighting health tips, revisiting some previous posts, and helping you put a boost on your style all week long just in time for Father's Day!


Men's Health Week began in 1994 with the purpose of heightening awareness of preventable health problems among men.  Led by the Men's Health Network, this week is an opportunity to health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. 

Often, men's health is not given the same attention as women's health, so we want to be sure you gents get your just due.

Here are some events happening nationally to commemorate the week:
