Health Care For Men

We all need to pay attention to our health. But men in particular have unique health needs that need attention. It’s important not to ignore warning signs or put off visits to the doctor. Connecticut has made finding coverage and care easier than ever.

Taking Care of Yourself

Studies show that men are more likely than women to smoke, drink, and avoid checkups. This can put men at a higher risk for serious illnesses. We want to keep all CT residents healthy. You can change your health at any time. Start with small steps like walking more, eating healthier foods, and scheduling that overdue appointment.
