June brings us Father's Day and Men's Health Month, two occasions when we focus on the men in our lives.

Did you know that men are more likely to neglect their health compared to women? The major issues revolve around managing chronic medical diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart disease, and high cholesterol. Eating healthy can help.

The university partners with WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers) to offer benefits-eligible employees more than 50 percent off WW Digital and Wellness Workshops for unlimited community meetings. With its Freestyle program, WW delivers a holistic and personal approach to healthy food choices that is both flexible and livable.

Men's Health Month is a perfect time to commit to staying as healthy as you can by eating well, becoming active, and getting the support you need. WW can help with motivation, tips, and recipes, including a healthy, easy to make blue cheese chicken burger that's perfect for summertime BBQ's.
