Needs Analysis:

Morbidity and mortality rates in males in the United State and abroad are striking. Men do not seek healthcare at the same rate as women and children. We should be creating a culture that promotes good health for all people through healthy development across the lifespan. 

Shedding light on how government policies as well as public attention have grown to accept poorer male health outcomes is a task that needs to be dissected and attended in public health, health education, health promotion, and community involvement. 

This conference intends to review, discuss and fulfill the need to better understand gender specific issues relating to benign and malignant prostate disease, hypogonadism, male infertility and sexual dysfunctions

4.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(TM)

Water's Edge Resort & Spa
1525 Boston Post Road, Westbrook, CT
