Men’s Health is Power

Celebrate & Support Men’s Health in June & Year-round

For centuries, men have been breadwinners, protectors, soldiers, fathers and husbands. They are taught to be strong and firm, thus withstanding pain and images of weakness. This tradition has led to a culture of men, fathers, husbands and partners who often ignore their own health and well-being in the name of masculinity. Over the years, poor health education and a lack of male specific health programs that focus on men’s health and well-being has continued, and in some ways, gotten worse.
We at Health Power are committed to improving the Physical, Mental and and Spiritual Health of  men, especially men of color, because we know that “Men’s Health is Power”.
Also, while June is Men’s Health Month, because of the important role they play in their families, “Men’s Health is also a Women’s and Family Health Issue”.  In other words, the health of our men is closely connected to the health of their spouses, other partners, and other family members. Thus, Health Power is focusing on:
  • Increasing men’s health awareness
  • Disease prevention through risk reduction
  • Early disease detection, and 
  • Disease Control. 
We must also maintain a constant focus on our boys, physically, mentally, and spiritually, because they are  moving daily along the pathway from boys, to men, to fathers. Therefore, parents and other adults need to share values, and examples, with boys that result in fewer unplanned pregnancies, and single parent and fatherless homes, especially in low income communities. We must all remember that unplanned, single parent and fatherless homes are a boy problem and a community problem as well as a girl problem.

    I drop a leave a response when I appreciate a post on a site or
    I have something to contribute to the conversation.
    It’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And after this article Men’s Health is Power | Health Power for Minorities. I was actually moved enough to post a thought 😛 I do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of the responses come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online sites, I’d
    like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list all of all your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
