June Is Men’s Health Month

Wednesday, June 01st, 2016

This month Internal Medicine Center focuses on men’s health in order to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection among men. We encourage all men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

We’ve got three easy tips to follow to help you experience better health:


Eat Healthy

Start by taking small steps like saying no to super-sizing and yes to a healthy meal. Eat many different types of foods to get all your vitamins and minerals you need. Add at least one fruit and vegetable to every meal.
