This Father's Day give the men you love the best gift of all - the gift of a healthy future


Did you know that new research has found that men are 31 percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year? In fact, men report making fewer routine health care appointments compared with women (56.5 percent vs. 73.8 percent).

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Ad Council are launching a new movement on behalf of their national public service advertising campaign designed to encourage middle-age men to learn which preventive medical tests they need to get and when to get them.

Can you help us get the word out about the importance of men's preventive health care this Father's Day, during National Men's Health Week (June 14 - 20) and year round?

Here are a few ways you can help get the word out!!:

Encourage the men you know to visit ahrq.gov/healthymen, which provides recommended ages for preventive medical tests, a health care quiz designed to test knowledge of preventive health care, tips for talking with doctors, a glossary of consumer health terms, and links to online resources to find more medical information. Also, keep an eye out for the new PSA's encouraging dad's to take care of their health

Send the men in your lives this new e-card for Father's Day by visiting http://www.dadtothedoc.org


Ask your husbands, fathers, brothers, etc. to take the health quiz at http://www.ahrq.gov/healthymen/quiz.htm

Tweet about the men's preventive health campaign, sharing the www.ahrq.gov/healthymen and the www.dadtothedoc.org URLs. The hashtag for the campaign is #dadtothedoc

Let your Facebook friends know about the campaign's Facebook page facebook.com/healthymen and the incredible resources available.

Sit down with the men in your life and take a look at the tools needed for a healthy future. Send the health e-card this Father's Day to remind the men you love about the importance of protecting his health this Father's Day and for many more to come.
