Men's Health Day Toolkit

Men's Health Day Toolkit - Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

This toolkit can help American Indian/Native Alaskan communities launch a Men's Health Day program.  It can also be used by other communities with modification.

A Men's Health Day is a one stop screening and education event at which men receive physical exams, screening for cancer, diabetes and heart disease and health education.  Under the sections below, you will find information on the who, what, how, when, and why of creating and running a successful Men's Health Day in your community.

The toolkit is based on a men's screening program implemented successfully with the Standing Rock Community Health Representative (CHR) Program and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in south central North Dakota and north central South Dakota.  Our success led us to develop this Men's Health Day Toolkit in partnership with Spirit of E.A.G.L.E.S, an NCI-funded initiative (U54 CA153605-01) which seeks to reduce cancer health disparities among native populations.  For further information, please contact the Community Health Representative office at 701-854-3856, or Jodie Fetsch, RN, Director of Nursing, Custer Health, at, or troll free at 1-866-667-3370.
