Conversation with Movember Canada’s Todd Minerson


Movember is better known as the month-long campaign ran each year around the world throughout all of November to raise awareness of men’s health, focusing on issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.  Over time, Movember has become a global movement which goal is to encourage men to pay greater attention their health and to get help when needed, this to help reduce the number of untimely deaths in men and to improve their overall well-being.
 
The Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE) interviewed Movember’s Canada Country Director, Todd Minerson, who kindly accepted our invitation to tell us more about the movement, its different campaigns, and to educate us on some of the unique health challenges faced by men.

CAPE: Welcome Todd and thank you for taking the time to talk with us. Can you tell us more about Movember and what you focus on?
 
Todd: Movember started in Australia in 2003, when on a lark, a group of friends decided to grow moustaches for a month in support of prostate cancer research.  Their first go was so successful that the next year they launched Movember.  We are now running campaigns in over 20 countries around the world. Our roots are in prostate cancer research and support, but as we evolved, our mandate did as well . . . CONTINUE READING
