Our first guest is Dr. Ryan Burkland his subject matter is Dad’s and Son’s Health. It is easy for dads and sons to talk about sports, work or the weather – but when it comes to health issues opening up may not be so easy. For many men – health issues are kept close to the vest. But when it comes to your health, knowing your family history can make a huge difference in your quality of life. Don’t shortchange your family’s future health by avoiding a conversation with your dad or son. Last year, Cleveland Clinic created the MENtion It campaign to find out what men really talk to each other about. As you can imagine, health is not a popular topic of conversation between men. In fact, men are 5 times more likely to talk about current events (36%) than their health (7%) in casual conversation with their male friends. This year’s MENtion It campaign aims to get men – specifically dads and sons – to put sports talk on hold and instead open up to each other about what matters…their health.
