DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — June is designated for Men’s Health Month and to bring awareness to preventable health problems and encourage early detection of disease among males.
According to Southeast Health Chief Medical Officer, Dr. George Narby, men often are less likely to seek medical care and medical attention than women are.
Men’s Health Month is meant to encourage males to seek medical help and get regular checkups to prevent a number of diseases.
“Men have health issues just like everyone else,” Narby said. “Whether that’s high blood pressure, or trouble with their blood sugar, or cholesterol, those kind of things need to be addressed.”
Dr. Narby added taking care of those things is as simple as going to your doctor and getting a routine check up and normal screening assessments.
