National Men’s Health Week Unites Americans on Healthcare: in Support of Wellness Education
OmSanA® Wellness Challenge Reveals Health Myths for National Men’s Health WeekNeenah, WI – June 14, 2010 – For more than a year, the Healthcare Reform has sparked unparalleled debates about health and wellness. With liberals, conservatives and nearly the entire populace weighing in, Americans are polarized on their support as state legislators applaud—or file lawsuits against—the plan. Yet, even with the dramatically differing viewpoints, an overwhelming majority of Americans have united on one key issue: the need for prevention. A recent public opinion reveals that 86% of Democrats, 71% of Republicans, and 70% of Independents support investing more dollars in preventative programs to educate the public about making healthier choices. Programs such as National Men’s Health Week, beginning on June 14, will play an essential role in current efforts to educate men about the importance of preventive health care practices.
The demand for health prevention education is evident, but will this newfound knowledge convince men to make lifestyle changes? What if they knew that preventive measures could extend their lives by nearly five years? Additional persuasive studies show that in comparison to women, men have a lifespan that is five to six years shorter; they have less frequent physical exams and are more likely to be uninsured. Without educational programs, some men may never become aware of how prevention could impact their lives.
Efforts to increase public knowledge about the benefits of wellness and prevention are continuing to gain momentum. The Department of Health and Human Services will be overseeing the distribution of $15 billion over the next ten years to support wellness and prevention initiatives.
Companies such as Santal Solutions LLC—the creators of OmSanA®— are supporting National Men’s Health Week by educating the public through campaigns such as the “OmSanA® Wellness Challenge.” This online Challenge asks Americans to determine which health-related statistics are myths and which are facts.
