Summer is the time for men to think about and take action on preventable health problems. That’s the purpose of National Men’s Health Month, which took place in June, is to heighten awareness and encourage early detection of disease or injury among men and boys.
The celebration of Men’s Health Month extends beyond just the month of June. It involves education and outreach by public policy makers, education institutions, the media and loved ones of fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons.
Dr. Elmo Agatep can offer perspective and commentary about common diseases and injuries that strike men and boys. Dr. Agatep is a family and sports medicine physician with OptumCare Medical Group in Seal Beach. In addition to his medical training, he was the physician for the 2016 U.S. men’s and women’s beach volleyball team and the U.S. women’s water polo team.
