AAMN Recommends Prevention as the Priority New Year’s Resolution for Men

The American Association for Men in Nursing (AAMN), a leading advocate for men’s health, representing the 330,000 men in nursing across the United States, encourages adult males to make preventive health care a priority in 2017.

“U.S. life expectancy for men dipped by two-tenths of a year in 2015 to 76.6 years, according to a recent report from the National Center for Health Statistics," said AAMN President Brent MacWilliams, PhD, MSN, RN, APNP, ANP-BC, “and it's the first decline in more than two decades.”

According to Dr. MacWilliams, the role of prevention and early intervention is critical for longevity. “While many risk factors are beyond our control, there are specific actions that every man can take immediately to optimize his health over a lifetime.”
