Informational Videos

Working towards its vision of ensuring optimum health for all individuals, the Department of Health - Men's Health program produced informational videos to help men make their health a priority in their lives. The initiative was inclusive and data-driven as it addressed important areas of concern to help improve the quality and quantity of life experienced by men. These videos are available through a partnership with STL-TV. The Department of Health thanks the experts and the gentlemen who provided insight on their experiences during these tapings. 

Breath Better, Live Better 

In preparation of Healthy Lung Month in October 2021, the Department of Health - Men's Health program held a discussion about the impacts of chemicals (smoking and vaping) and environmental elements on a man's lungs and information on lung cancer screenings.

Stress Management 

Although fewer men report stress symptoms, men are more vulnerable to serious health conditions associated with chronic stress. Learn techniques to combat stress and take care of your mental health before the stress of the holiday season.
