International Men's Health Week (MHW) runs annually from the Monday before Father's Day to Father's Day itself. This year it will take place from 11th - 17th June 2018. The aims of the week are to: heighten awareness of preventable health problems for males of all ages; support men and boys to engage in healthier lifestyle choices; and encourage the early detection and treatment of health difficulties.
This year, everyone is being asked the question: ‘What’s your small step going to be?’ Find out more about MHW 2018 at: www.mhfi.org/mhw/mhw-2018.html

We contacted this group to run this AMA to coincide with International Men's Health Week (but it is non-commercial). Hopefully it proves insightful and makes you think more about your own or your loved ones' health. If you have any questions, ask away!
