What better time of year to celebrate Men’s Health Month than when the salmon are running and dad is out enjoying his favorite summer activities. Men’s Health Month is certainly about celebrating the men in our life but more importantly, it aims to keep them healthy by spreading awareness about the importance of preventative care and early detection.
In many of our experiences, getting dad to go to the doctor can be tough, especially when there is fishing, hiking and yard work to be done. But as our parents age, it’s even more important to make sure we are doing routine check-ups. So, in between fishing trips and camping adventures, try to get dad in for a doctor’s appointment this month.
