Men and Boys Coalition co-founder and Trustee, Mark Brooks OBE, has secured a major win for representation of men’s health at one of the country’s leading health and wellbeing conferences.
After speaking at the Health and Wellbeing at Work Conference in Birmingham last year, which attracts around 4000 visitors, Mark persuaded them to have a conference stream on men’s health next time – as they had one on women’s health.
He sent suggestions of topics and speakers in the summer and they now have a whole stream with some great speakers and topics, Mark will be Chairing this section of the conference. See the schedule below and scroll down to explore the speakers on men’s health.
Whilst it is employer focussed, the fact that such a big conference has this dedicated men’s health stream is politically and reputationally important at a national level for our on-going campaign for a Men’s Health Strategy.
This is a fantastic example of the kind of success we can achieve through positive and expert engagement. Three cheers to Mark!
