DORED wears blue today for men’s health

The DORED staff gathers for a group photo with everyone wearing blue to promote Men's Health Month

The DORED staff: Looking good in blue to promote men's health.

The Division of Research and Economic Development is wearing blue today to raise awareness of men’s health.  The effort is part of Men’s Health Month, a national event that coincides with the International Men’s Health Week observance, which is this week.

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. To learn more about Men’s Health Month, visit the event’s website.
