College Health Consultation

Look at any life-expectancy table and the story is the same: Men live shorter lives than women. A lack of regular health care, combined with learned behaviors, cuts men’s lives short by at least seven years. Preventive health care can give those years back.

College-age men (15 to 24) have especially high health risks. But, like men in general, college-age men have far less contact with health care providers than do women, who often have annual exams.

Your contact with a college man must pack a lot of punch — it may be the only chance you’ll get for assessment, education, and intervention. It’s essential that you make the most of your time with male students in your office. Now, for the first time, training is available to show you how.

This year, millions of men will suffer needless injuries, illnesses, and deaths. Among college-age adults, three out of every four deaths will be male — and nearly all of these deaths could be prevented.

Men’s greatest health risks are the direct result of their unhealthy lifestyles and behaviors, such as eating poorly and driving recklessly. Recognizing the special needs and risks of male students, and understanding how manhood shapes men’s attitudes toward illness, is critical for professionals wanting to help these young men live longer, healthier lives.

You can learn this and much more in the Men’s Health Training Series, which offers continuing education and training designed exclusively for college health professionals.

This training is based on Will Courtenay’s extensive work and research in the field of men’s health. It has been provided to campuses nationwide and was well received at a recent American College Health Association Annual Meeting.

By following the Clinical Practice Guideline For the Treatment of Men offered in the Men’s Health Training Series, participants will be able to identify high-risk behaviors in college males and use effective intervention and patient education methods that are designed specifically for men. Applying this guideline will reduce men’s risks and health care costs, while teaching them how to lead longer, healthier lives.
