During this month, it is important for men to take a moment to evaluate their health.

  • Learn the signs of sepsis.
  • Engage in regular exercise.
  • Perform testicular self-exams on a regular basis.
  • Maintain a balanced diet by consuming nutritious meals.
  • Pay attention to your mental health. Remember, mental health is just as important as physical health, and men are statistically less likely to seek help for mental health difficulties.
