Assemblywoman Titus Celebrates Men’s Health Week
Assemblywoman Michele Titus is encouraging men of all ages to schedule an appointment with their physician. The Assemblywoman, joined by Pastor Evan Gray, will host her community initiative to raise awareness of preventable health problems this Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20 at Macedonia Baptist Church, 330 Beach 67 Street, in Arverne.
This week, June 13 through June 20, is the national recognition of Men’s Health. The purpose of the week is to encourage and motivate men to live healthy. The Assemblywoman is encouraging men to participate in the health survey mailed to the men in her district.
According to Titus, there is no discussion of men’s health issues. In fact there is a crisis in men’s health; in particular, there are alarming health statistics for men of color. Due to poor health habits, lack of health insurance, failure to have regular checkups, exams and not seeking proper medical attention the men live sick and die younger.
