New Initiative Urges Women to Address Men's Health this New Year
Date:1/5/2009

Harry Fisch, M.D. Professor of Clinical Urology, Columbia University, New York Presbyterian Hospital. "Women play an active role in their husband's health; if they are better informed about the signs and symptoms of treatable medical conditions such as low testosterone they can help make a big impact in the health of their male partners."

-- Not surprisingly, on average women report that the men in their lives spend five times more hours a month watching television than addressing their personal health; less than a quarter (21 percent) said that long-term health is most important to their husband's or male partner's daily life.
