SUPPORTING MEN’S HEALTH WEEK
End the Silence. Wear BLUE to Make Men Aware!
June 13 – 19, 2022, choose a day and Wear BLUE to bring awareness to the importance of staying healthy.
There is an ongoing, increasing and predominately SILENT crisis in the health and well-being of men. Due to a lack of awareness, poor health education, and culturally induced behavior patterns in their work and personal lives, men’s health and well-being are deteriorating steadily. Society is being dramatically affected both at home and in the workplace because men are living approximately 5 years less than women.
At UHSM, we care about the overall mental, physical, and spiritual health of our members, which includes preventative care.
End the Silence and remind men to stay healthy.

Men’s Health Week
Whether it is your friend, brother, dad, boyfriend, spouse, or boss, show them you care about them and their health by wearing blue.
Men live sicker and die younger. Wear BLUE was created by Men’s Health Network to raise awareness about the importance of male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives.
Men’s health awareness can mean many different things.
It means raising awareness of making healthy lifestyle choices, making regular annual visits to the doctor, getting educated on heart disease or diabetes, starting general health conversations with their male friends, and much more.

Wear BLUE is sponsored by Men’s Health Network. Men’s Health Network is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men and their families with health awareness messages where they live, work, pray, and play.
