Men’s Health Month: Xavier Undergoes Health Screenings LIVE at McLaren Northern Michigan

June is Men’s Health Month.

It’s aimed at raising awareness of preventable health problems and encourage men to head to the doctor.Img 4164

According to the Cleveland Clinic, more than half of men surveyed said their health just was not something they talk about. The same survey found only 3 out of every 5 men get annual physicals.

Avoiding the doctor can often mean avoiding catching problems early, when they are most preventable or treatable.

The two leading causes of death among men are heart disease and cancer. Both have better outcomes the earlier they are caught.

For Men’s Health Month, Xavier is highlighting the importance of checkups by getting one himself– live on ‘the four’ at McLaren Northern Michigan in Petoskey.

Their hope—it will encourage other men to do the same and potentially, save a life.
