HealthCurrents Special Issue: Men's Health

Inside this special issue
Studies show that physical and mental health doesn’t always make it to the top of the priority list for men. But there are some things every man should know. Males are at higher risk for prostate cancer, heart attack, lung cancer, excessive drinking, and more. Statistically, men may take more risks and pay less attention to their health. Although health might not always be on your mind, it’s always on ours at Spectrum Health Lakeland. In this special issue, we explore some common health issues men may encounter and solutions that can help.
