Make it a Movember to remember


content-img-lrg-MovemberHeader_2016-11-04_103030

Cook Medical is once again joining the Movember movement to raise awareness for men’s health. It’s a topic of conversation that’s near and dear to us, not just because we work in the healthcare industry, or because many of us are men, but also because so many of our co-workers, friends, and companions are affected by these issues. We add our voices to the cause to encourage better health for those we hold close.

Global statistics (Source: World Cancer Research Fund International www.wcrf.org):
Movember is about raising awareness for men’s health, including several types of cancer.

What are the risk factors?
Some of the most-researched risk factors for prostate cancer are out of a man’s control—such as age, race and ethnicity, and family history. Other factors may be the result of an individual’s lifestyles and habits. Take action and read about how you can reduce the risk for prostate cancer.

What can you do?
Join the conversation. November gives us an opportunity to put emphasis on raising awareness for men’s health, but this is a topic you can address every day of the year. Start by talking with a loved one, or go to social media to join the conversation (#Movember).

Get growing. If you’re feeling extra bold, grow a moustache and challenge your bros to a friendly mo-growing competition throughout the month of November. It’s not just for the boys. Everyone can show their support with one of these fun (and less scratchy) ‘stache styles.

Get moving. There are also great ways to get involved and spread the word through various physical activities and challenges. Check out the Movember Foundation’s website for more information.
