Men often put their health on the back burner. This is especially true for Black and Latino men. And no matter what age they’re at, there’s no denying men are a whole lot less likely to visit their doctor. Going to the doctor for regular check-ups is a big part of staying healthy! So why are men less likely to make regular visits to the doctor?
Another reason could be the comfort factor. Maybe they aren’t comfortable with the idea of getting an exam or a blood draw. Or maybe they have the “dread factor,” thinking they are going to learn some bad news or get a lecture. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We are not here to make people feel bad; we want to help you stay healthy.
