RMACT is dedicating the month of June to all the men in our lives. Whether it be a family member, a spouse or a friend, we are going to put them first this month and focus on their health. Why? Because according to MensHealthNetwork.org, “men live about 5 years less than women and they make 1⁄2 as many physician visits for prevention than women”. Isn’t that crazy? RMACT wants to help change these statistics by encouraging men to become their own advocates, make regular check-ups and talk about/seek treatment for their complaints. We invite you to follow us on social media all month long for ways you can help the men in your life fine tune their health.

Men are often a forgotten piece of the equation during fertility treatment. Typically, they need to undergo less testing and procedures and infertility is often (incorrectly) thought of as a “woman’s” problem. In fact, male factor infertility accounts for about 30-35% of problems in those #TTC, about the same is true for women. That brings us to Father’s Day, a day where many men feel sad AND isolated because they’re not fathers yet and they’re not necessarily talking about it. We’re going to hear the thoughts and feelings from one daddy yet to be about what this day means to him. Join Patient Advocate Lisa Rosenthal and Dan Houle, co-writer of “Where’s the Fu#$king Stork?”, as they share thoughts and yes, feelings, on how to manage a day that can feel like a bear.
