June is Men’s Health Awareness Month: A Conversation with the Men

When was the last time you had a heart to heart conversation with a man about their next doctor’s visit? Throughout the month of June men will be constantly reminded to keep their health a priority. Did you know 30,000 men have died from prostate cancer in the U.S every year? Tonight, we will discuss the importance of men checking their prostate and staying consistent with their doctor visits. It’s Medical Monday, and its time to address your concerns.
