Celebrating Men’s Health Week

June 28, 2020

From holding virtual men’s health quizzes to taking part in socially distanced exercise classes, it was great to see so many RSK employees getting involved in Men’s Health Week last week to raise awareness of health issues that disproportionally affect men and shine a light on men’s physical and mental health.

Roses are red, quizzes are blue!

In celebration of Men’s Health Week, the RSK Middle East team held a virtual e-quiz and invited everyone to dress in blue! The session, which was conducted by Meera Achan, raised awareness of men’s health issues, including mental, physical and emotional well-being.

Workouts and healthy dishes in Uganda

In Uganda, the Men’s Health Week activities were led by Adam Foss, who used the celebration as an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of daily exercise and a balanced diet.

As well as sharing his own daily exercise routine, which includes a very picturesque morning walk, Adam provided some healthy eating inspiration with ideas for delicious dishes. The first was Gemista, a Greek dish made with stuffed peppers, rice and vegetables, a sautéed salad of beans and carrots and a Greek salad (with many of the ingredients homegrown by Adam). The second was a simple fruit salad of pear, kiwi, peach, apple, greengage and banana served with Greek yogurt, honey and cinnamon, making use of the abundance of fresh fruit in Uganda.

Finally, he touched upon mental health and well-being by sharing a few simple steps with colleagues: connect with people; be physically active; learn new skills; give to others; and pay attention.
