4195.0 2007 North Carolina Men's Health Report Card

Tuesday, November 6, 2007: 2:30 PM
As part of FirstHealth of the Carolina's work as a Community Voices grantee, it became evident that men's health is an often overlooked component of the health of a community and is not readily captured in the same way as women's and children's health. As FirstHealth Community Voices began to work on policy for men's health at the state level, it became evident that there was no single data source to determine the status of men's health in North Carolina. FirstHealth took the initiative to research and determine the feasibility of developing a statewide Men's Report Card. The first North Carolina Men's Health Report Card was released in January 2007.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe the need for a men's health report card; 2. Discuss the barriers in the production of a men's health report card and how they can be overcome; 3.Describe the primary health concerns among men in North Carolina; and 4. Discuss future data needs for men's health research
