It’s Men’s Health Week in Illinois and public officials have one simple message for guys: get a check-up! Men tend to live as long as women and die at higher rates from diseases like cancer, stroke and heart problems. Public Health Department spokesperson Sabrina Miller says that’s why it’s so important for you to get annual physicals….
The Health Department, DMH, and St. Mary’s all offer blood screening and stroke, heart disease, and male cancer information. Miller says you also need to stick to a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise.
