Places are still available at the Royal Society of Medicine's first-ever men's health conference.
Men's Health: Defining The Way Forward is a one day invitation-only meeting that will gather together some of the UK's leading clinicians, researchers, charities, and other key players involved in the expanding field of men's health with the aim of producing a consensus statement on the subject.
Brief lectures to stimulate the debate will be delivered by opinion formers. These will include cancer, sexual health, cardiovascular risk and life-style modification.
MHF president Professor Ian Banks, who is hosting the meeting along with Professor Roger Kirkby and Professor Mike Kirkby says: 'Men on average die 5 years earlier than women. This is the gender gap. Men in parts of Glasgow die on average 10 years earlier than men in Dorset. This is the inequalities gap. Even so, there is an increasing evidence base for optimism not fatalism. Clinical political and social advances are at last taking men's health seriously. The consensus statement is the important next step.'
Places are filling up fast so no promises but if you're interested, let us know using the form below.
