Over the past 18 years, November has been widely recognized as Movember. Movember was created in 2003 in Australia to help raise awareness about major health issues that are often disregarded in the domain of men’s health: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, metal health and physical inactivity.
Until recent years, men’s health issues have been an avoided subject due to the stigma around mental and physical health. Fortunately, more and more men have taken the necessary steps to overcome the stigma and positively impact their health, whether through health screening and/or seeking treatment. The movement that started that as a fashion trend, has grown over the years into an organization that has helped raise funds to aid in funding for men’s health issues.
This November, we ask that you share this information with a man who may benefit from this information. At ProMet, we always aim to advocate for all of our patients and aim to promote healthy living in all aspects.
