2010 INTERNATIONAL MEN'S HEALTH WEEK

VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Mark your calendars! International Men's Health Week will be observed worldwide beginning 13 June 2010 through 19 June 2010. Launched in 2002 by representatives from six leading global men’s health organizations at the Second World Congress on Men’s Health in Vienna, Austria, International Men’s Health Week calls attention to the unique health issues of Men throughout our global village and encourages the development of health policies and resources and support services that will effectively address the critical health issues confronting Men throughout our global village.

And what are these critical health issues? Prostate cancer, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and hypertension.

International Men’s Health Week is supported by a myriad of organizations throughout our global village that include the Men’s Health Network (USA); European Men’s Health Forum (Belgium); International Society for Men’s Health (Austria); Men’s Health Forum England and Wales (United Kingdom); the Men’s Health Forum Scotland (Scotland); and Men’s Health Information and Resource Center (Australia).

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties.
