It's National Men’s Health Week, a special awareness period recognized by Congress.
This year NMHW will be June 11th – June 17th.
Why is it important?
Currently, men are dying an average of 5 years younger than women.
Government studies show some shocking facts about men's health:
Men are at greater risk of death in every age group.
Men have a higher suicide death rate than women.
Men account for 92% of fatal workplace injuries.
Men do not see physicians for a physical exam as often as women.
So what can you do to make an impact?
Join the movement! Take part in health screenings and outreach efforts like the #WearBlue campaign.
And of course, encourage the men in your community to focus on their mental and physical health.
Men’s Health Week is organized by Men's Health Network(MHN), a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health awareness messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
"My experience at this urgent care facility was a pleasant one. I brought my daughter in due to an allergic reaction. The staff members there were awesome!"
