What Health Screenings and Checks Men Need and When

Studies show that to stay healthy means eating well and getting out and about to move around. Not only will these behaviors help you live longer, but you’ll feel better over time, especially as you age. One thing that men should do regularly: visit your primary care doctor for annual checkups. We at Generations find that knowing what health screenings and checks men need and when can be a common question.
