Volunteers in Medicine 

Men often struggle more than women to maintain good health. One reason is that some men are reluctant to go to the doctor. According to a National Harris Poll, 30% of men will wait until the last minute to seek care. In Duval County, adult men were hospitalized 2,000 times more than women in 2018. This number increases when considering under-insured men.
