It’s all part of their Health Initiative for Men, which brings awareness for male health screening and education. It also raises funds for the cause. 

“In the U.S, men die five years earlier than women on average, and for largely preventable reasons,” said Griffin Hospital Chief Medical Officer Frederick Browne, M.D. “According to statistics, 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men, and 3 out of 4 suicides are committed by men. These statistics show just how much the men’s health crisis needs our attention.”

You are encouraged to email your best “MO” to him@griffinhealth.org
