About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Movember

Have you heard about Movember?

The word makes me think of some kind of bulldozer or small construction vehicle but it has to do with mustaches and men’s health. SURPRISE.

Every November, guys (and girls? mostly guys!) grow mustaches to raise money for men’s health, specifically for prostate and testicular cancer. These cancers have a huge prevalence in the population. Why don’t they have as big of an awareness campaign as breast cancer?

It’s an interesting question, and that’s why there are movements like Movember! My husband Curtis is very passionate about men’s health as a social worker.

I’ll just let Curtis play us off with his statement!

Men’s health is an important issue for me. This summer I had the unique opportunity to co-facilitate a men’s issues group at a residential facility. What I learned from this opportunity I carry with me not only in my heart, but on my upper lip. This moustache symbolizes to me how much men’s physical and mental health are bound together. Thank you for your continued support!
