TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — It was all about the men Wednesday at Florida A&M University's Men's Mental Health Awareness Luncheon.

June is Men's Health Month and this is the fourth year the university has hosted the luncheon.

There was free food, gift bags, and a discussion about men's health.

FAMU president Dr. Larry Robinson urged men to take control of their health.

"Get a physical, get physical, mind your diet, and you know take care of yourself on the behalf of you and your family," said Dr. Robinson.

The Leon County Health Department talked about sexually transmitted diseases, which is a problem in Tallahassee and with men older than college-aged.

Allied Health spoke about medical marijuana and there was even a discussion about home fire safety.
