Men’s Health Week is celebrated each year as the week leading up to and including Father’s Day (June 12-18 this year.) The purpose is to heighten awareness of preventative health measures, and encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.

Noted dietitian Becci Twombley is Director of Sports Nutrition at USC. Merrill Moses is a three-time Olympian and medal winner in water polo. Together, they can share tips and habits to stay fit and healthy to help viewers at home reduce the risk factors for health problems as they age. They will present ways to take charge of our health, nourish our bodies and, in the spirit of the nationwide initiative, eliminate some potential health problems.
