Men’s Health and Blood Disorders
Many men do not get medical care, undergo preventive screenings, or even have a primary care doctor.1 All men, need to have regular checkups and be aware of health risks for their age, ethnicity, and lifestyle.
Men’s Health Month encourages men to take charge of and be proactive in their overall health. It’s a great time to remind the men you know who have blood disorders to care for their bodies! This includes eating right, exercising, and taking charge of their mental health and well-being.
