The Committee on Men’s Health of the Washington State Urology Society has and will continue to support efforts toward improving men’s health for all men. Health care promotion, and awareness through the media, community events and healthcare provider education are supported goals of the committee.
We actively and openly solicit suggestions for media dissemination, community participation and educational opportunities through speaker engagement.
Encouraging men to be involved in their health and to understand the appropriate steps and milestones of health maintenance are extremely important. The committee is dedicated to improving access to current information on all topics necessary to do so.
In 2022, the WSUS Men’s Health Committee launched a prostate cancer screening education initiative to address attitudes toward the use of prostate-specific antigen testing among urologists and general practitioners in Washington State. This is a multi-year initiative.
Launched in 2019 a podcast was built upon a previously printed effort and seminars with similar information focused on improving men's health. The wide availability of the podcast medium makes for an eloquent solution toward improved information dissemination. The Original Guide to Men’s Health is a goodwill effort presented and available to all free of obligation or cost.
