June is Men’s Health Month. According to the CDC, the leading causes of death in U.S. males are heart disease, cancer and unintentional injuries. Men are more likely than women to sustain a spinal cord injury and/or a traumatic brain injury, and are at a higher risk for falls, motor vehicle crashes, homicide and drowning.
