  • Please take the Health Department survey on men's health

    The life expectancy for men in the United States is about 76 years for men and 81 years for women.  

    runningWhy is it women outlive men by such a significant amount of time?  While there are several reasons for this, some of which are biological, there are steps men can take now to make sure they live a long, healthy life.  

    Going to the doctor for regular preventative health exams, for example, is one simple action you can take to improve your health.  Eating lots of fruits and vegetables and getting two and half hours of physical activity per week are two other healthy goals to work towards, especially since nearly 3 out of 4 men in the United States are either overweight or obese.  

    The Pima County Health Department is working hard to bring more awareness to men’s health issues, but we need your help.  Please take this short survey — we want to hear from men and women!
