Men's Health Month
Anchored by a Congressional health education program, Men’s Health Month is celebrated across the country. Its purpose is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
DCFL will honor Men’s Health Month with a celebration on our front lawn! Join us on Wednesday, June 17 from 9:30 – 11:30am for refreshments and lawn games.
