Each year Men’s Health Month is celebrated on the national, state, and local levels. Governors and mayors issue proclamations for Men’s Health Week in their jurisdictions, the week leading up to and including Fathers Day (June 15 – June 21, 2015). Private businesses, government agencies, churches, fraternities, and other organizations host health screenings, educational, and other awareness events. And, most importantly, individual men and women make a commitment toward a healthier lifestyle.
You can start your Men’s Health Month celebration by joining Men’s Health Network @Menshlthnetwork for two Twitter chats during the month.
The first one is TODAY! Just log in to Twitter and follow the hashtag, #MensHealthMonth.
6/2/15 — Chat on men and heart health. Use #MensHealthMonth to join the conversation. From 1PM to 2PM ET.
6/23/15– Chat on men and mental health. #ShowUsYourBlue to join the conversation. From 1PM to 2PM ET.
