Baldwin Family Health Care’s staff will observe National Men’s Health Week today by wearing ties typically worn by men.
Baldwin Family Health Care hopes the ties – goofy, serious, bright, or dark – will draw the interest of the people they serve. June is National Men’s Health Month, and the week prior to Father’s Day is observed as National Men’s Health Week.
“We’re hoping that patients will become curious enough about all the ties that they’ll ask what’s going on and we can start the conversation and inform them of the campaign, and the importance of the men in their life practicing healthy habits,” said Baldwin Family Health Care Executive Assistant/Facilities Manager Terri Vanias. “We’re bound to make an impression on someone.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (http://www.cdc.gov/men/nmhw) recommends men get good sleep, toss out the tobacco, move more, tame stress, stay on top of their game, and find affordable health care.
Baldwin Family Health Care is one of Michigan’s 35 Health Center organizations, which are on the front lines everyday providing quality, comprehensive, affordable primary and preventive health care to more than 600,000 Michigan residents at over 220 delivery sites across the state. It is one of many Health Centers in the nation that provides care regardless of patients’ insurance status or income level.
