Men’s Health Research

The UNC Men’s Health Program aims to address the silent health crisis among men.

The average man prioritizes too many things over his health, is likely to drink alcohol and use tobacco, make riskier choices, and go for extended periods without seeing a physician. Compounding these issues, many of the major health risks that these men face can be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle and getting regular physician screening.

The UNC Men’s Health Program is supporting research designed to address the healthcare and social issues of Men’s Health through The North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC TraCS) Institute at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
