If you see more moustaches and beards this month, it’s all to raise awareness for a very important issue— men’s health.
November becomes “Movember!”
At the Hall of Fame Barbershop in Syracuse, doctors from Saint Joseph’s Hospital proudly getting one last shave to spark conversations and raise money for issues surrounding men’s health this month
“Men need to get to the doctor and get checked out in order to take care of their health. Men we know are very poor at preventive health. If you think about it, men have spent much more time doing routine preventive maintenance on their cars than they have about their own health and their own health issues,” said Dr. Angelo Derosalia, chief of urology at St. Joseph’s Health.
To date, the Movember movement has raised more than $710 million and has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects in 21 countries.
