Congressional Leaders and Men's Health Network Emphasize the Importance of Health During the 15th Annual National Men's Health Week
Date:6/9/2008

WASHINGTON, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressional leaders and their staffers will set an example of health prevention by kicking off a week-long celebration of National Men's Health Week, June 9-15, 2008, with a health awareness event June 10-12 on Capitol Hill. The 11th annual Congressional health event, hosted by Men's Health Network (MHN), is designed to stress how health awareness, education, and outreach can save lives.

NMHW -- celebrated each year during the week ending on Father's Day -- sponsors activities across the country, bringing together corporations, government agencies, religious and fraternal organizations, and others committed to the prevention and treatment of men's health issues. Hundreds of groups across the country host events during June to celebrate NMHW and help ensure a healthier future for our nation. For a partial listing of these local events, please visit http://www.menshealthnetwork.org/calendar.htm.

For the past ten years, health education and awareness of topics ranging from prostate health to cholesterol, have been offered on Capitol Hill during NMHW, with over a thousand Members, staffers and employees participating each year. "We're pleased that Congress continues to take such an active role in emphasizing men's health," said Scott Williams, VP of Professional Relations and Public Policy for MHN. "The purpose of National Men's Health Week is to heighten awareness of health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and their families. The support of Congress and NMHW participants nationwide has enabled awareness of men's health issues across the country."

Additional support for this awareness period comes from the more than 45 governors who declare Men's Health Week in their states. Copies of many Governor's proclamations can be found at http://www.menshealthweek.org. Senator Crapo and Congressman Cummings have also sponsored resolutions recognizing NMHW, and the Congressional Men's Health Caucus, founded and chaired by Congressmen Hill and Fossella is helping to raise awareness.

Men's Health Network is a non-profit educational organization comprised of physicians, researchers, public health workers, other health professionals, and individuals. MHN is committed to improving the health and wellness of men and their families through education campaigns and work with health care professionals to provide better programs and funding on men's health needs.
