Men's Health Symposium: Current Concepts and Controversies
The exclusion of men and boys from the larger debate on health equality has become "normal" with men often absent from national health objectives and no specific focus on male-centered health care. Morbidity and mortality rates in males in the United States and abroad are striking.
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 and sexual dysfunctions.
