Pottstown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/13/2018 -- In honor of Men's Health Week, which is taking place between June 11th and 17th, the team at Community Health and Dental Care is raising awareness for health issues and risks that men face throughout their lives. By becoming aware and taking action now, men can set themselves up for a safer and higher quality life later down the road.
As they age, men may face several unique challenges that need to be addressed for maximized health. Men are more likely than women to suffer an injury from a fall. Even when adjusted for age, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that men are 49% more likely than women to suffer a more severe fall. Few people are aware that men are more likely than women to be diagnosed with heart disease earlier in life. With an average diagnosis coming 10 years earlier than women, heart disease should be on the top of every man's list of health concerns.
Men also may be more likely than women to skip or avoid scheduling checkups, making Men's Health Week the perfect time to call for that missing appointment with a general practitioner or a dentist.
This year, residents of all ages and genders are being encouraged to celebrate their health and invest in their bodies by seeking the medical attention and education they've been missing. Whether they are in need of emergency dental treatments or they've been searching for a local pediatric eye doctor in Pottstown, Community Health and Dental Care is here to help everyone live a healthier life.
Anyone who is interested in learning more about CHDC's team or scheduling an appointment with their pediatric eye doctor in Boyertown is encouraged to give them a call at 800-589-6212 today or visit online at https://ch-dc.org.
