June 1 kicked off Men’s Health Month, bringing awareness to the challenges and disparities men face in healthcare.

The Civilian Health Promotion Service, or CHPS, on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is hosting classes during the month focusing on men’s physical, social, mental and spiritual health.


These classes will discuss men-specific health risks and needs, such as heart disease, cancer and unintentional injury, as well as identifying positive lifestyle changes to prevent and reduce risk of disease, reviewing health screenings potentially beneficial to men and describing steps men can take to reduce risk of injury and illness.

The classes will also highlight services CHPS provides at no cost, such as blood glucose levels and cholesterol screenings.

Upcoming class dates, times and locations are:

• June 20, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p. m., Bldg. 2 on Area A

• June 27, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Bldg. 16 on Area B, Room 143B
