Men: Are you stubborn about your health?

Drive along I-94 or any other major interstate and you’re likely to encounter a bright, red billboard stating: “This year thousands of men will die from stubbornness.” According to the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the agency responsible for the billboards, men are 24% less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year. June is Men’s Health Awareness Month, so to help men get the information they need about preventive screening for cancer–a key part of any annual health regimen–the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center has put together an online guide.

Visit the guide to learn about current guidelines for prostate, colorectal, lung and skin cancer screenings as well as to link to more resources about men’s health.
