National Men’s Health Week & Father’s Day

Poster National Men’s Health Week (June 13-19) is celebrated each year the week leading up to and including Father’s Day (June 19). In observance of National Men’s Health Week, help NDEP spread the word about diabetes prevention and control in men. In the United States, there are an estimated 13 million men aged 20 or older with diagnosed or undiagnosed diabetes and many more who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. That’s nearly 12 percent of males over the age of 20 in the U.S. If left undiagnosed or untreated, men with diabetes can face serious health problems associated with diabetes, such as heart attack and stroke. Diabetes can also lead to erectile dysfunction, kidney disease, loss of a toe or foot, and blindness.

Check out NDEP’s resources to help the men in your community prevent or manage their disease. Encourage men in your community to manage their diabetes with NDEP’s article, “ATTENTION MEN! Control Your Diabetes For Life... And For Your Family.” Share the real-life examples of Haywood—a father of two working hard to manage his type 2 diabetes—and David—who shares his “rules of the game” when it comes to managing his type 1 diabetes. Listen as Haywood and David discuss their strategies for managing their diabetes. Promote their stories with the Family Health History: Haywood & Family, Managing Diabetes: David, and Managing Diabetes: Haywood posters.
