Calling All Mo Brothers & Mo Sistas!
In case you hadn't noticed, the month of Movember is now upon us! Once again, we'd like to ask for your help in supporting UCD campaigns to help to change the face of men’s health.
In the midst of exams, deadlines, social lives and the countless activities that fill up our diaries, it is easy at times to lose sight of why we all study and work at a medical school: to improve the health of people and society.
That’s why, this November I want you, your friends, your lecturers, your family and everyone that is capable of sprouting even the most snigger-inducing mo to become walking, talking, moustachioed campaigners for men’s health and prostate cancer research. For the facial hair-challenged females among us (or Mo Sistas, as we like to call them), you too can get on board by supporting the men in your work and lives. We need to raise money and raise awareness of the UCD Movember campaigns.
I am deeply proud to work at the interface of medical research and men’s health. My role, as UCD principal investigator of the Prostate Cancer Research Consortium, has afforded me the opportunity to work in an area in which medical science is having a real and demonstrable impact on the lives of patients at home and internationally.
I’m asking for your help, your time, your humour and your commitment to grow your Mo this Movember.
Prof Bill Watson
