Chicago LE - Top doctor advises men to take their health seriously
A new top doctor in Chicago is telling men to take their health seriously.
Illinois' top doctor has a message for men during the National Men's Health Week.
'Men's Health Week is a great reminder to all men that we need to take our health seriously.'
Hasbrouck is pushing for men that are past due for medical appointments to sit down and take some time to schedule a checkup appointment. He says that men are known to be less likely visit a doctor for annual exams than women are. He exclaims that "it's a pattern that must be reversed" for the sake of all men for not just their health, but their lives.
The doctor was an important speaker during the Men's Health Week events located at the Komed Holman Health Center in Chicago. He reminded those who attended to focus on solutions to unhealthy problems and pushed them to work on removing mental and physical barriers and make it easier for men to access care when needed.
"Men's Health Week is a great reminder to all men that we need to take our health seriously. If you are overdue for a checkup, take this week to schedule a visit with your doctor or to visit a healthcare facility or clinic for a general checkup." said Dr. Hasbrouck. "Men frequently ignore symptoms and are reluctant to seek medical care until there is a crisis. Early detection and treatment is critical to staying healthy."
