Why build this resource center? Did you know men are less healthy and have a shorter life expectancy than women, on average? Part of this is because men are more likely to go long periods of time without going to the doctor, they’re less likely to adopt preventive health measures, and are more likely to engage in risky behaviors.
One of the goals of this site is to show men how health issues are interrelated. How being obese can effect your cardiovascular system. How successfully managing your diabetes can lead to a healthier life. How parenting and fatherhood can encourage you to live a more fulfilling lifestyle, not just for you, but for your family.
So, take an active approach to your health – it could save your life.
The Men’s Health Resource Center is managed by Men’s Health Network, a national non-profit headquartered in Washington, DC, who’s mission is to reach men, boys and their families where they live, work, play and pray.
