OHPE Bulletin 214, Volume 2001, No. 214

Next week we have a feature on Men's Health written by Joe Jacobs, Executive Director of the Toronto Men's Health Network. Joe writes, "When asked if I was interested in writing something about men's health for this bulletin, I wondered about the best way to approach the subject. Being the director of Canada's first non-profit health organization focused on promoting the health of men and boys has given me the unique opportunity to learn about the health issues and behaviour of males. Given that 'Men's Health' is conceptually pretty new in Canada, I figured rather than load up on statistics illustrating how men die or areas where they are unhealthy, I would instead try to describe what 'Men's Health' means to me in my own words."
