Griffin Hospital Hosting “MO”vember Photo Contest

By Alex Stackpole on 11/8/2018

Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men (HiM) is hosting its annual “Show Your ‘MO!” Contest this November to support men’s health awareness.

Everyone is invited to submit a picture of their “MO” (aka mustache or facial hair) for a chance to win great prizes. Real or fake, all “MOs” are welcome. Simply email a photo to him@griffinhealth.org by Nov. 30 to be entered into a contest for three prize baskets.

HiM hosts this fun contest to raise awareness about men’s health and funds for free men’s health screening and education.

“In the U.S, men die five years earlier than women on average, and for largely preventable reasons,” said Griffin Hospital Chief Medical Officer Frederick Browne, M.D. “According to statistics, 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men, and 3 out of 4 suicides are committed by men. These statistics show just how much the men’s health crisis needs our attention.”
