Month of Man: Celebrating the men in your life

Brandon's Mo

Brandon shows off his own Mo and the Movember decorations he added to a colleague’s door.

Happy Mo Growin’ to everyone! I hope your Mo’s are coming along nicely now that we’re in the middle of Movember.

Some of our Northern Health men (and even women – see photo below!) have been showing off their Mo’s in order to help raise awareness of prostate cancer research and men’s health. We’ve gathered photos of these Mo Bros, posted them on our men’s health site and now we need your help! Who do you think is growing the best Mo?

We’ll be updating their photos with their progress on Friday, so be sure to check back and vote again – you can even vote every day if you want to. Then on December 7, we’ll crown the best Mo’Grower as the 2012 Mr. Movember.

Cookie Mo's

Kathleen, a public health nurse from Dawson Creek, brought in a batch of gingerbread mustache cookies to celebrate Movember!

Have you seen the new MANual yet? It’s our gift to you: a men’s health survival guide. Men’s health matters, so this booklet gives you health information for men of all ages about nutrition, active living and health screenings men need at various stages of life. Check it out and be sure to share it with other men in your life!

You can even win your own print copy of the MANual. Test your knowledge in our interactive men’s health quiz and you could win a MANual and an assortment of other men’s health goodies!
