LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Here’s a look at today’s episode of WAVE Country with Dawne Gee.

June is Men’s Health Month

June is National Men’s Health Month. Statistically men are the worst when it comes to going to the doctor or taking care of themselves. But it doesn’t have to be a challenge to go to the doctor or take an active approach to your overall health.

To keep up with your good health, it’s a good idea to have an annual physical with your primary care physician. During these visits, you can get routine screenings, have your cholesterol and blood sugar checked. Check in on vaccines, such as flu, hepatitis A and Tdap.
