First Project Seminar on Men’s Health - From Community to Professional - The Way Forward?
The Mount Conference Centre, Woodstock Link, Belfast
Tuesday 18th May 10.00 -12.30
The Man Matters Project (funded by the Big Lottery Fund) is promoted by the Men’s Learning and Health Partnership which is led by the Workers’ Educational Association. Over the next five years the project will work with hundreds of men through learning programmes in the areas of health, family, education and community/volunteering.
The project is committed to running a series of seminars which will bring together individual men, community and voluntary organisations, professionals working in the field and policy makers to discuss the learning from the project and how it can inform policy and services.
The first seminar will focus on the key area of Men’s Health and how health professionals and lay health workers from the community can both work to improve the health of men. Speaking at the seminar will be:
Dr Noel Richardson,
Director of the Centre for Men’s Health at the Institute of Technology Carlow.
Noel will speak about some of the challenges in engaging men with health services and will refer to training he has run with Health Service staff to raise their awareness of men’s health issues.
Men’s Health Development Officer, Health Service Executive Dublin/North East.
Finian will speak about work he has been developing with lay health workers and how they can raise the awareness of men about their own health
As well as input from the speakers participants will be asked for their views on how to best progress the issues discussed particularly with a view to informing the policy debate.
