Men: Take Charge of Your HealthThursday, October 30th12:00 – 1:00 PMThe David Adamany Undergraduate Library, Bernath AuditoriumDid you know that men live, on average, five years less than women? That they have a higher chance than women of dying from all but one of the 15 leading causes of death? It is fair to say that men are not winning when it comes to their health.
At this session, Dr. Darren Jones will discuss the barriers that keep men engaged in their health and share steps that can be taken to overcome these statistics. This session is for men who want to take charge of their health and the women in their lives that want to encourage them to be healthier.
