Get Dad to the Doc! -Unique Free Gift for Dad

Did you know that new research has found that men are 31 percent less likely than women to have visited a doctor within the past year? (I didn't) In fact, men report making fewer routine health care appointments compared with women (56.5 percent vs. 73.8 percent).

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Ad Council are launching a new movement to encourage middle-age men to learn which preventive medical tests they need to get and when to get them. You can be part of it by sending the men you love a FREE Health E-Card this Father's Day and encourage them to take the health quiz. They may also visit the official Healthy Men website, which provides recommended ages for preventive medical tests, a health care quiz designed to test knowledge of preventive health care, tips for talking with doctors, a glossary of consumer health terms, and links to online resources to find more medical information.
