Congresswoman Beatty Celebrates National Men’s Health Week

This week, June 11th - 17th, is National Men’s Health Week, a week-long initiative to bring awareness of preventable health issues affecting men and to encourage more men and boys to make their health a priority. To mark the occasion, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following announcement:

“In 2017, American men made half as many doctor appointments as American women. Unfortunately, this troubling statistic has real life consequences. That is why, I encourage more men across the nation to schedule regular checkups, seek treatment when they are sick or hurt, and to adopt simple, healthy, lifestyle habits this week and all year long.”
