During National Men’s Health Week, Congressman Markwayne Mullin encourages men to lead healthy lifestyles by exercising regularly and getting regular health screenings, which ultimately lowers their risk of chronic disease. 

 “Leading a healthy lifestyle should be a top priority for all Americans,” said Mullin, co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus, “but too often, we overlook our health in the midst of a busy day.  National Men’s Health Week was created by Congress in 1994 to convey the importance of regular health screenings and encourage active lifestyles among all men."

In recognition of Men’s Health Week, Congressman Mullin will host his annual workout on Capitol Hill on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from 7:00am – 8:30am EDT in Upper D Park (located behind Longworth House Office Building).  As co-chair of the Men’s Health Caucus, Congressman Mullin leads a challenging workout each year to promote healthy living and the importance of regular exercise.  The workout is open to all Members of Congress, congressional staff, and members of the press.

“As a co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus, I am excited to celebrate Men’s Health Week by hosting our annual Men’s Health Caucus workout on Capitol Hill,” said Mullin.  In his role as co-chair, Congressman Mullin has hosted briefings to inform the public about men and opioid addiction in the workplace, the impact of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) on boys, preventative health measures such as prostate cancer screenings, and more. 

National Men’s Health Week was established by an act of Congress in 1994.  Now in its 24th year, Men’s Health Week continues to endorse healthy lifestyles for men of all ages.
