Men! Do you know your family's health history?

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - It's not only Men's Health Month it's Men's Health Week.

The designation is part of a Congressional health education program dedicated to men to help encourage them to take care of themselves.

With Father's Day coming up this weekend, Health Reporter Valerie Lego decided it was time to take charge.

She talks with Dan, Aaron and Dave about their health history. The latest survey on men's health found that four out of five men have never talked with family members about health conditions.

She quizzes them on three of the most important issues:

  • Do any of you know if there is a history of heart disease in your family?
  • What about prostate cancer?
  • What about diabetes?

With Father’s Day this weekend, take a moment to talk with your family members about their health history. It just may save your life.
