Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Adriano Espaillat (NY-13) issued the following statement in recognition of Men’s Health Month:

“June is National Men’s Health Month and a time during which we encourage men of all ages to be proactive in their health and wellness,” said Rep. Espaillat. “The leading causes of death for men are heart disease, cancer, and chronic lower respiratory disease. There are proactive measures we can all take from diet, exercise, education, and early intervention that can significantly reduce disease and chronic illness. We each must find ways to incorporate healthy living into our daily routines – from routine checkups, wellness screenings, preventative care, and regular exercise. This month, join me in making the commitment to build awareness of preventative health for men of all ages and the families that care for them the most.”
