June 12-18 is Men's Health Week.
Men make up 49% of the population, and we're determined to reduce the number of men dying prematurely. Sadly, more than four men die every hour in Australia from conditions that might have been prevented, this is a catastrophic situation for the family left fatherless!
In this episode we discuss men's health with Associate Professor Gary Richardson. Gary is the Director of the Szalmuk Family Department of Medical Oncology in the Cabrini Institute. He is a past-chairman of the Medical Oncology Group of Australia and immediate past-president of the Private Cancer Physicians of Australia.
