Hey, Guys, take care of yourselves!

It’s National Men’s Health Week! We’d like to take a few moments to remind all the men in our lives to take care of themselves: Get some exercise, make good food choices, go see your primary care provider for important screenings, wear sunscreen and a helmet when needed, and travel safely (among many other steps to healthy living). Here are a few items from the NIDILRR community and elsewhere for the guys in our lives (with and without disabilities) to help them be healthy:

Get important screenings

Get a little exercise

Eat something healthy

  • Cook up something tasty from the Disability FEAST cookbook developed by the World Institute on Disability under a NIDILRR field initiated grant.

Spend quality time with the family

Talk about sexual health

A healthy sex life is important to overall health. Talking about sex, either with your partner or your healthcare provider, can be a challenge. Here are a few resources to help:

These are just a few tools you can use to improve your health. If you’re interested in research in the areas of health screening and health promotion for men, see what we have in our collection from the NIDILRR community and other sources available through our document delivery service!
