Palmeira Home + Health is supporting the Men’s Health Network this year by helping to get the word out about the importance of men’s health!
“The statistics are clear that we need more awareness and emphasis on men’s preventative health screenings and healthcare focus in general,” says Palmeira CEO Gen Barter. “Men make half as many physician visits for prevention as women every year.”
Wear BLUE Day is celebrated every year on the Friday of Men’s Health Week!For 2019, Wear Blue Day is Friday, June 14. The Palmeira team will be wearing blue this June to show their support.
Wear BLUE Day is celebrated by private corporations, government agencies, sports teams, and individuals to show their concern for the health and wellbeing of boys and men.
Organizations and individuals can host a Wear BLUE day to raise awareness and money for education about men’s need to seek regular checkups, or testicular cancer education, prostate cancer education, or other health issues that affect men. (Cardiovascular disease, skin cancer, lung cancer, diabetes, gout, and more.)
Wear BLUE Day is a part of the year-round Wear BLUE® awareness campaign that was created by Men’s Health Network to raise awareness about the importance of male health and to encourage men to live longer and healthier lives, and give women an opportunity to encourage them to do so. Many people take advantage of less stringent work attire to show their support of men’s health by wearing blue.
The social media hashtag #ShowUsYourBlue has grown tremendously over the years.
Wear BLUE Day and Men’s Health Week are sponsored by Men’s Health Network. Men’s Health Network is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach boys, men and their families with health awareness messages where they live, work, pray, and play.
