Men's Health Week table debrief

Last week, I hosted a Men's Health Week table at the Concord Hospital cafeteria on June 12th, 2012.  

The purpose of the event was to increase awareness of the Men's Health Week celebration as well as distribute educational materials regarding men's health concerns.  

We had free granola bars and popcorn at the table, courtesy of the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA).  Special thanks to New Hampshire SUNA Chapter President Kris Green, RN, CURN for the support.

At the table we had free information on:
  • Prostate health
  • Testicular self exam
  • Fatherhood
  • Low testosterone
  • Mens and women's health checklists
  • What women should know about men's health
  • Highway safety

A plethora of free giveaways was graciously provided by the NH Highway Safety Agency.  Many thanks!  Did you know that the #1 cause of death for young men in America is "unintentional injury"?  I have a prior blog post about this issue.

The event was a success with about 150 people coming by.  I had many good conversations with people about men's health issues and was happy that people were not shy about approaching the table.
It was such a good experience that I hope to make this an annual event.
