Invitation to Join Our Board of Advisors:

September, 2004
Board of Advisors
Men's Health Network

You are invited to apply for inclusion on the Men's Health Network (MHN) Board of Advisors. Membership on the Board of Advisors is limited to health professionals and certain others who have distinguished themselves in one of the focus areas of MHN.  A partial list of that group can be found by clicking here.

MHN is an educational campaign to significantly improve male health, longevity, and quality of life and gives practitioners, clinicians, therapists, and other health care providers an excellent opportunity to highlight the services they provide for men (disease and awareness, work safety, therapy, dependency, suicide prevention, family counseling, etc.). The MHN structure is a "big tent" approach and anyone interested in the physical, emotional and mental health problems faced by men is encouraged to participate.

MHN is dedicated to achieving the following goals:  

  • to save men's lives by reducing the premature mortality of men and boys
  • to increase the physical and mental health of men so that they can live fuller and happier lives 
  • to significantly reduce the cycles of violence and addiction that afflict so many men.
  • Energize government involvement in men's health activities so that existing government health networks can be utilized to increase the health and well being of men and boys.
  • Encourage women to expand on their traditional role as the family's health care leader and activist for enhancement of health care services.

You can read an overview of MHN's goals, programs, and coalitions by clicking hereThrough these efforts, we hope to focus media attention on problems which plague men and the unfortunate effects those problems have on their loved ones, their employers, and our health care infrastructure.

If your application is accepted, you will join a distinguished group of professionals who are dedicated to raising the public's awareness of men's health needs. That group includes Dr. Harry P. Howitt, Lt. Colonel, U.S.A.F. and Past President, Air Force Society of Clinical Psychologists; Kenneth Goldberg, M.D., Male Health Clinic (Dallas); Jack Williamson, D.Min., Ph.D., Chief of Plans, Programs and Professional Development, Air Force Chaplains (Ret.); Anne McMurray, R.N., B.A.Ph.D., Faculty of Nursing & Health, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia; Alvin Burner, M.D., Col.

Board of Advisors, Acknowledgment:
   
YES: I believe that an education campaign to significantly improve male health, longevity, and quality of life is needed. 
I agree that society needs to address the health care problems of men and the unfortunate effects those problems have on their loved ones, their employers, and our health care infrastructure. The media should be encouraged to focus attention on problems which plague men and which, by extension, affect the women in their lives. 
Please list me as an advisor to the Men's Health Network.
I understand that I am not obligated to participate in the day-to-day activities of the Men's Health Network and that I am simply endorsing the need for men to reach out for assistance, and encouraging them to do so.
