Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) June 19, 2015
Representatives with CareMed Urgent & Primary Care (https://caremedurgentcare.com), announced today that the company is in full support of Men’s Health Month, which is the month of June.
“In support of Men’s Health Month, the CareMed staff will be participating in a Wear BLUE day,” said Dr. Vipul Mangal, M.D., co-owner and spokesman for CareMed Urgent & Primary Care. “CareMed is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of men taking control of their health to prevent disease and ensure a longer, healthier life.”
Wear BLUE is sponsored by Men’s Health Network. Men’s Health Network is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men and their families with health awareness messages where they live, work, pray, and play.
Mangal stressed that CareMed is committed to doing everything it can to emphasize the need for men to get regular checkups (which they can do at its clinic), to educate themselves about testicular and prostate cancer, as well as to learn about other health issues that affect men including CVD, lung cancer, diabetes, and more.
“Men’s health awareness can mean many different things,” Mangal said, before adding, “It means raising awareness of making healthy lifestyle choices, making regular annual visits to the doctor, getting educated on heart disease or diabetes, starting general health conversations with their male friends, and much more.”
