June 14th – 20th is International Men’s Health Week. It’s the week leading up to Father’s Day each year.
During this week, people around the globe encourage boys, men and their families to focus on men’s health and health policy.
Understanding Men’s Health
The overall goal of Men’s International Health Week is to spread awareness to men all over the world.
Our goal at NV Silver Insurance is to teach men about preventable health issues, to schedule routine check-ups and encourage men to check-in with their healthcare insurance providers.
This week is also the perfect time to share our knowledge of health insurance options. As Nevada’s preferred medical insurance broker, we know how important it is to be prepared for any medical hurdles ahead.
How Men Should Protect Their Health
Preventing Problems Ahead
International doctors say maintaining a healthy lifestyle lowers risk of non-communicable disease. Eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and regular routine exercise are all important.
One of the largest health risks to men is prostate cancer. Studies show eliminating smoking, drinking, and changing diet can help lower risk of prostate cancer in men.
But, before stepping into the doctor’s office for a check-up, it’s important to come fully prepared with a plan. Knowing your Nevada health insurance options will ensure your health won’t become a financial burden.
