  • Fourth Annual Congressional Workout Attracts Bipartisan Support

     

     

    (Washington, D.C.) A little Capitol Hill heat and humidity didn’t stop members of Congress from sweating it out today for the fourth annual Men’s Health Caucus Workout as part of Men’s Health Month and National Men’s Health Week (June 11-June 17).

    Members from both political parties planked their way through a nearly-hour-long workout on Capitol Hill early this morning led by Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK). The routine included staff and members of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus, a bipartisan group with over 40 members led by Congressman Mullin and Congressman Donald M. Payne Jr. (D-NJ).

    “It was great to celebrate Men’s Health Week today on Capitol Hill by leading our annual Men’s Health Caucus workout with members of Congress and congressional staff,” said Congressman Mullin.  “An active lifestyle is paramount for living a long, healthy life and I enjoyed sharing my daily workout routine to promote the positive impact of daily exercise.”

    “Members of Congress are leading by example today as they push through this workout. It’s inspiring to see members of both sides come together to spread awareness about men’s health and to recognize Men’s Health Week and Men’s Health Month,” said Ana Fadich, Vice President of Men’s Health Network.

    “Diet, exercise, and regular visits to the doctor are key to maintaining good health,” said Congressman Payne Jr. “Each year, I am proud to encourage my colleagues to get out and exercise at the Congressional Workout. Healthy habits can be fun, and the Congressional Workout is a great way to get started.”

    Members of Congress that joined Congressmen Mullen and Payne Jr. include:

     Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT), Rep. Martha McSally (R-RI), Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO), Rep. James Comer (R-TN), Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Rep. Carlos Curbelo ( R-FL), Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) ), Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-AZ), Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-AR ), Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA).

     

    The annual workout takes place during Men’s Health Month in June and National Men’s Health Week, an awareness period recognized by Congress in 1994.

    Photos from the event will be viewable here on 6/15.

  • Passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton in 1994

     

    WASHINGTON – National Men’s Health Week (NMHW) is charging into its 24th year today as Men’s Health Month continues all June. NMHW is celebrated each year as the week that ends on Father’s Day, June 11-17 this year. The week is celebrated around the globe as International Men’s Health Week.

     

    The legislation creating NMHW was sponsored by Senator Bob Dole and Congressman Bill Richardson and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994. Since then, the week has grown to include Men’s Health Month and is recognized by communities and jurisdictions throughout the country. Governors and over 300 Mayors and Native American communities have issued proclamations in their jurisdictions. Those can be viewed here.

     

    “Leading a healthy lifestyle should be a top priority for all Americans,” said Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R- OK) co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus. “But too often, we overlook our health in the midst of a busy day. National Men’s Health Week was created by Congress in 1994 to convey the importance of regular health screenings and encourage active lifestyles among all men. As a co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus, I am excited to celebrate Men’s Health Week by hosting our annual Men’s Health Caucus workout on Capitol Hill.”

     

    “We’re pleased that the mission of Men’s Health Week, educating men, boys, and families on the importance of their health, continues to resonate with individuals, communities, and organizations throughout the country, said Ana Fadich, Vice President of Men’s Health Network. “National Men’s Health Week is all about empowering men to be more active and engaged in their health and well-being.”

     

    During this time, health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based community organizations, and government agencies, plan activities that focus on the health and well-being of boys, men, and their families. These activities take the form of Wear Bluecampaigns, informational articles in corporate newsletters, lunch-n-learns, conferences, bulletin board displays, videos, community health fairs, and more. Many take advantage of the posters and logos available for download on the Men’s Health Month web site. A national focus is Wear Blue Friday, celebrated yearly as the Friday before Father’s Day (June 15 this year). Congress will also be holding a Congressional Workout event encouraging our nation’s leaders to also be engaged in their health.

     

    “National Men’s Health Week is upon us, which is a great reason to begin building healthy habits,” said Congressman Donald Payne Jr. (D-NJ), co-chair of the Congressional Men’s Health Caucus. “Too often, men forego routine medical examinations and visits to their doctor. This week is a reminder to men everywhere to take care of their minds and bodies by talking to their doctor.”

     

    A key part of the continued momentum is the annual event and social media campaign, including:
