This one's for you, guys. The newly reauthorized Congressional Men's Health Caucus is zeroing in on men's health issues, as part of a bipartisan effort to tackle prostate cancer awareness and veterans' health as top legislative healthcare priorities during the next few years, according to a press release from Men?s Health Network (MNH), the national nonprofit that will work closely with Congress to push this agenda.

Markwayne Mullin (R-Oklahoma) and Donald Payne, Jr. (D-New Jersey) will lead the caucus. Payne recently lost his father to colorectal cancer and pledged to raise awareness about the disease that?s the most prevalent form of cancer among U.S. men. Specifically, the group organized a prostate cancer task force to reach out to three groups at risk of colorectal cancer: African Americans, veterans who were exposed to Agent Orange during military service and people with a family history of the condition.
