Rep. Pete Aguilar Stands with Mayor Carey Davis to Raise Awareness for Men’s Health

Today, Rep. Pete Aguilar (CA-31) released the following statement in recognition of Men’s Health Week:

“It’s important that we remind men throughout our community and across the country to prioritize their health and get critical preventative screenings. This is about family health, ensuring that our fathers, brothers, and sons in every neighborhood have access to proper healthcare and are taking care of themselves. I’m pleased to stand with Mayor Carey Davis on this issue. We need to have these important conversations with our families, so I’m happy to take the time to highlight this during Men’s Health Week,” said Rep. Aguilar.

Mayor Carey Davis said, "As we celebrate Father’s Day this weekend, it’s important to remember that Men’s Health Week is the perfect time to highlight the importance of awareness for preventable health issues and to encourage healthier lifestyle choices for males of all ages."

Rep. Aguilar met with representatives from Men’s Health Network and offered his support for San Bernardino Mayor Carey Davis’ official proclamation in recognition of National Men’s Health Week, which runs from June 15th-June 21st. Men’s Health Month is celebrated every year during the month of June. Rep. Aguilar is committed to working with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle, as well as officials and representatives at every level of government, to raise awareness for crucial preventative screenings for men and to promote general health awareness.
