1 minute read time

Movember is uniquely positioned as the leading men’s health charity, with focus areas on men’s mental health and suicide prevention and prostate cancer, to host a dialogue about health disparities, with a focus on Black, Indigenous and People of Color.

We are using our platform to host a panel on September 30, 2021 to discuss challenges to mental wellbeing for BIPOC communities and expanding the discussions around health disparities within these communities. We'll take a close look at mental health and prostate cancer and the work we are doing in these areas. We want to create safe spaces for healthy dialogues with experts and people who have lived experience or work with mental health and prostate cancer.
