Men's Health Champion: Dr. Donaldson
We engaged some Men's Health Champions to talk about men's health in a language we all can understand.
Men are known to be more indifferent towards their health, especially when compared to the efforts of women, who proactively and publicly address their health issues in a way not traditionally seen with men. As a result, today the levels of awareness, understanding and funding for support of men's health issues, lag significantly behind women's causes such as breast cancer.
The reasons for the unfortunate state of men's health is primarily due to a lack of awareness. This can largely be attributed to the reluctance of men openly discussing the subject due to longstanding traditions, coupled with an "it'll be alright" mentality. Men are less likely to schedule medical appointments when they feel sick. The same goes for an annual physicals, colonoscopies, and other screening thereby denying them the chance of early detection and effective treatment of common diseases.
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment go to PardeeSelect.org for more information on finding a physician.

Women Helping Women
Henderson County's breast cancer rate was one of the state's highest in 1998 when Women Helping Women was founded by a group of compassionate and concerned women. Working hand-in-hand with Pardee Hospital Foundation, they started Women Helping Women to raise funds for women who couldn't afford to pay for breast cancer screenings and women's health treatments.
Today the program has grown to include financial assistance to patients who are uninsured or underinsured and need health care for breast and other women's cancers, heart disease, osteoporosis and other life-threatening illnesses. More than $1.6 million has been raised and nearly 1,000 patients have been helped. Henderson County now has one of the state's highest breast cancer survival rates.
