Men's Health Week - June 14 / 20, 2004
June 02, 2004

President Clinton signed the "National Men's Health Week" Act on May 31, 1994. The purpose of Men's Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.

Of particular importance to us here in Sutter County, men in rural communities are at highest risk for exposure to tobacco use, physical inactivity, high-fat diets, and encounter a greater degree of social, economic and geographic barriers to prevention.

To address this growing men's health crisis in America, the Men's Health Network (MHN) created Time Out for Men's Health™, a national awareness campaign that offers free health assessments, educational materials and consultation with a health professional for men at 15 events across the United States.
