Men's Health Symposium

Mar 27. till Mar 27.

Men's Health Symposium

2020health in partnership with Men's Health Forum sponsored a symposium focusing on men's health and the use of technologies.

Men’s health has received less attention in this country than women’s health. The inequality debate has largely focused on women, but a number of initiatives from the Department of Health have been put in place to try to redress these inequalities, including the introduction into National policy of the Gender Equality Duty and addressing the findings of the study into ‘Gender and Access to Health Services’. To date, these have not yet had the impact that has been hoped for.

The Men’s Health Forum have undertaken a huge amount of work in the UK to highlight not only the inequalities but the attitudes towards men’s health by men themselves, improve information and encourage men and boys to think about their health and well-being.

Speakers:
- Professor Lord Patel of Bradford OBE
- Dr Charles Gutteridge, National Clinical Director for Informatics, Department of Health
- Peter Baker, Chief Executive, Men’s Health Forum
- Jim Pollard, editor of the award winning Maleahealth.co.uk
- Julie Horsley, Health, Work & Well-being Co-ordinator, Department of Health
- Professor Alan White, Professor of Men’s Health, Leeds Metropolitan University

Feedback:
“I thought it was an excellent and informative event” – Fiona Campbell, Specialist Mental Health Advisor, First Steps – Surrey Mental Health Programme

“Men’s health does not seem to be addressed as well as it should be – according to the evidence. How can we all help in tackling / addressing this” – Jackie Williams, Occupational Health Advisor, Duradiamond Health Care Ltd

“Inspiring insight on how men perceive / read ‘health promotion’ type material, really got a feel for a need to change how we engage with this population – thank you Jim” – Aileen Uwins, Business Development Director, Abermed Ltd
