Moustachioed Campaigners for Men’s Health and Prostate Cancer Research

Tue, 30 October 12 09:00

This November, Professor Bill Watson and his research team are seeking moustachioed campaigners to help Movember and UCD change the face of men’s health. Professor Watson had this to say to potential recruits:

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.

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.

The School will support the campaign with feature articles and multimedia content related to research that takes place at the School. More details are available at www.ucd.ie/medicine/movember
