Spotlight on men’s health

As national attention turns to men’s health issues during the month of November, we wanted to spotlight specific risks to men’s health.

Men live, on average, 4.8 years fewer than women. This rate is steadily improving, but there are many steps that can be taken to improve education and awareness of ways to strengthen and improve men’s health.
