Movember, the month-long fundraiser for men's health, has begun.  The funds raised in Canada support men's health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and their men’s health partner, Prostate Cancer Canada.

The Movember Canada website has a short informative video featuring Dr. Larry Goldenberg, along with Adam Garone, Movember CEO and co-founder, and Steve Jones, CEO of Prostate Cancer Canada.

CityTV has a video of Dr. Michael Cox talking about Movember on Breakfast Television (Vancouver).  Note that two advertisements auto-play before this video starts.
