JUNE IS MEN’S HEALTH MONTH

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: PRESSURE BUILDS TO DROP MASK MANDATE ON PLANES…
Wearing mask may go from symbol of responsibility to vulnerability…
For Many Workers, Change in Mask Policy Is Nightmare…
WHY MASK WARS MAY NEVER END…

MEN’S HEALTH EXPERT: Dr. Salvatore J. Giorgianni, Jr., PharmD. is Senior Science Adviser to the Men’s Health Network and a Past-Chair/Chair-Emeritus of the American Public Health Association and former Alumni Association Board Member of Columbia University School of Public Health.

June is Men’s Health Month, a time to encourage boys and men to take charge of their overall health by making healthier lifestyle and wellness choices. This year, as the country is slowly beginning to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that men keep up a healthy regime by getting regular checkups and ensuring that their healthcare choices account for the risks associated with their age, ethnicity, family history, and lifestyle.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, men on average die five years earlier than women and at higher rates from three leading causes of death—heart disease, cancer, and unintentional injuries. Additionally, nearly 15 percent of men aged 18 and over are in fair or poor health.

This year, in support of Men’s Health Month, the HHS Office of Minority Health (OMH) will focus on promoting the Six Plays for Men’s Health to remind men and boys that they can improve their health by seeking medical advice and taking other important steps, such as making healthy food choices, staying active, quitting smoking, getting regular checkups, taking care of their mental health, and being #VaccineReady—which includes getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone can text their zip code to 438829 to get vaccination locations near them. For vaccine information in Spanish, text your zip code to 822862.

On June 18, OMH will join the Men’s Health Network to celebrate Wear Blue Day as part of the year-round Wear BLUE awareness campaign to raise awareness for education about men’s health.

Visit our Men’s Health Month webpage, available in English and Spanish, to learn more about the Six Plays for Men’s Health, and access shareable graphics and social media messaging as well as other men’s health-related resources.

BIO: Spanning a 40+ year career as a practicing clinical pharmacist, he is an advocate for better health services and resources to enhance the health of boys and men. He has held faculty appointments at both Columbia University and Belmont University and has authored over seventy peer reviewed and general media articles in healthcare and health policy.
