Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
We now know that there is not one autism but many subtypes, and each person with autism can have unique strengths and challenges. Most are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences, and many are accompanied by medical issues such as intestinal issues, seizures and sleep disturbances. An estimated 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum.
The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. June is the month designated to give health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.
About 1.1 million people in the United States have HIV, and 1 in 7 of them don’t know it. Many people have HIV for years before they get a diagnosis. For those who are living with undiagnosed HIV, testing is the first step in maintaining a healthy life and reducing HIV transmission. CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care and those at high risk get tested at least once a year. Some sexually active gay and bisexual men may benefit from more frequent testing (every 3 to 6 months).
Knowing your HIV status gives you powerful information to help keep you and your partner healthy.
Each year, during the first week of October, participants across the country raise awareness of mental illness. Each year, we educate the public, fight stigma and provide support. And each year, our movement grows stronger.
Gun violence is an epidemic in the United States, with 88 people killed by gun violence every day. There are countless common sense strategies to help end this epidemic, but the NRA has a chokehold on Congress, as well as many state legislatures, so change won’t come without a fight.
One powerful way to join the fight is to help make clear to lawmakers and the media that a majority of Americans want an end to gun violence.
Gun violence touches every corner of America. We don't have to live in a country where shootings happen every day. If we all stand up together and demand change, we will succeed.
