Students talked with men about the risks of prostate and testicular cancer

    The next year of the annual educational event MOVEMBER focused on men's health took place in the Aupark shopping center in Košice on Friday, November 12, 2021. The event was organized by 16 students of the Faculty of Medicine, who informed mainly men about the risks of prostate and testicular cancer. They addressed more than 350 men in total.
    "Based on our experience, we can say that men are more shy and less willing to talk openly about their health than women. Therefore we have tried to appeal to them that talking about health is not taboo and no health topics should be taboo. Prevention saves lives and health and we are glad that we were able to contribute a little with this educational event," says Viktória Kudriková, Vice-President for external communication of the Association of Medical Students in Košice, student of the 4th year of study programme General medicine at the FM UPJŠ.
