Educational Attainment and Health Behaviors Among Young Adult Men: Health-promoting behaviors are important for sustaining one’s daily life. Unhealthy behaviors lead to numerous negative health consequences, including physical and mental health problems, serious illness, and shorter longevity. This study aimed to examine the impact of educational attainment on health behaviors across young adult men and differences in the association across race/ethnicity. Researchers found that educational attainment was associated with both food intake and preventive health care visits. Education is one way to improve health behaviors and to lessen racial/ethnic disparities in health behaviors.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to educational attainment and health behaviors as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Hispanic Men's Perspectives of Activity-Related Health Behaviors: Approximately 83% of Hispanic men of Mexican origin are overweight or obese, which increases the risk of chronic disease and all-cause mortality. Physical activity (PA) may be an important strategy for Hispanic men in reducing incidence and risk factors of lifestyle diseases. The study engaged Spanish-speaking; Hispanic men of Mexican origin with overweight/obesity to examine perspectives of health behaviors related to PA. Researchers found strategies to improve PA interventions including accurately accounting for current PA levels of participants, considerations of family dynamics that influence PA-based behavior change, and considerations of economic and geographical constraints that can be remediated. 


Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to PA and Hispanic men’s health as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Men's Physical Activity and Sleep: Men’s workplaces provide an important delivery point for health promotion. The purpose of the study was to examine men’s pre-post physical activity and sleep following the intervention, as well as to explore program acceptability and gather men’s recommendations for health promotion. Researchers found that men’s suggestions to enable physical activity involved workplace practices/resources, reducing workload, and leadership support. These findings suggest that a gender-sensitive physical activity workplace intervention showed promise for improving physical activity and sleep among men.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to men’s physical activity and sleep following a workplace intervention as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Men's Work-Related Stress and Mental Health:

A strong relationship exists between employment and men’s mental health. For men who are employed, work itself has far-reaching implications. The purpose of the study is to contribute to theoretical understandings of men’s employment-related mental health experience and raise possibilities for gender-responsive employer supports for their mental health. Results of this study present processes by which theoretical concepts of masculine role norms influence work-related stress and mental health including injunctive norms, which operate through an internal sense of the cultural “should” and “should nots,” descriptive norms, which are communicated through the behaviors that a man sees other men enacting in the immediate environment, and cohesive norms, which exert influence through observations of how men who are leaders, behave. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to employment and men’s mental health as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Older Men and Physical Activity: As men age, participation in physical activity decreases. The lack of physical activity places men at risk of poor health and chronic diseases. The study aimed to enhance understanding of community-dwelling older men’s day-to-day experiences with physical activity. Findings provide an understanding of the diversity of older men and the need for physical activity programs that are unique to individual preferences and capacities. Future studies should address implementation with a larger sample of older men who reside in a broad range of geographic locations and of different ethnicities.    

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to gender-sensitized community-based physical activity as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research

Working Class Men's Feelings:

Men’s depression is underestimated, as major depression in men may be “masked,” manifesting with externalizing symptoms (i.e., aggression and substance abuse). Various social norm theories and masculinity models have been used in investigating men’s help-seeking. The purpose of the study is to give voice to men employed in physical labor using a CQR methodology to explore their constructions of help-seeking when feeling depressed or sad. Researchers posit that there is a need to account for men’s experiences both by negative and adaptive influences when addressing help-seeking for depression and sadness. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the purpose of the study and the methods related to men’s help-seeking behaviors as examined in the article
  2. Analyze the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings
  3. Integrate the study limitations with the identified areas of future research
