Why is it so important for men to have regular check-ups?

It’s a fact that women outlive men by five years—in 1920, women only outlived men by one year. Statistics also show that women are more likely to visit the doctor for an annual exam or other preventative services than men.

On average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women—something that the Men’s Health Network refers to as the silent health care crisis in America.

So, men, what can you do to close this gap? The Campbell County Medical Group Family Medicine Clinic encourages you to have your annual physical. Check out what Monte Haddix, RN, has to say about in the video below.
