Men need to take care of themselves both emotionally and physically as a key component of that mission. A recent infographic from Nursing@Georgetown and Nursing License Map sheds some light on the current state of men’s health with some sobering statistics that remind us all exactly why this is such an important topic year-round.
More than half of all premature deaths among men are preventable. Seven million American men have not attended a physician’s appointment in more than 10 years. These are just two of the many facts presented in this infographic — and by raising awareness, advancing health education, and recognizing culturally influenced behaviors, each of us can help improve men’s health.
