According to Men’s Health Network, the purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury.
Health educators, public health professionals, health students, lupus patients and primary care providers are invited to participate in this one-hour educational webinar. The Men and Lupus Webinar is part of educational webinar series of the DHPE LEAP Program. LEAP's intention is to increase lupus health education and awareness of lupus to address health disparities.
