BROOKLYN - Borough officials have launched their annual Take Your Man to the Doctor Campaign, urging women to remind their boyfriends and husbands to go for regular checkups. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), men between the ages of 18-44 schedule 20-percent fewer doctor visits than women do. Some men say they avoid the doctor because they can't afford health insurance, while others say they are afraid to learn what may be ailing them. Brooklyn resident Michael Manswell says he only goes in an emergency, but just found out he has high blood pressure. "I'm under some stress, so that might contribute to it," he says. "But that's not a good enough reason to not take care of yourself." In the event of a serious illness, doctors and city officials urge that patients catch the disease at an early stage.
