2019 MAN CAVE HEALTH AWARDS NOMINATIONS
Announcing the latest round of Nominations in Honor of Outstanding Achievements in the field of
New York, NY: Man Cave Health, Inc. proudly announces the latest round of nominees for its First Annual International Awards ceremony to be held in March 2019. More than 1,000 awards will be granted across the globe in recognition of outstanding achievements in the field of Men’s Health. We honor both the unsung heroes and the leaders in healthcare, science, government, business, education, sports, entertainment and the media for their commitment to prioritizing Men’s Health.
Driven by the notion that “men take better care of their cars than they do their bodies”, Man Cave Health is breaking the silence surrounding sensitive health topics for men. There are approximately 3.7 billion men in the world, and they will die on average, almost five years earlier than women because they are less likely to seek preventive care for themselves. Nearly 81% of men remember the make & model of their first car, but barely half remember their last doctor visit.
“For too long, men have taken a backseat to their healthcare journey. I believe Man Cave Health will be an integral part of changing that,” writes Ashutosh Tewari, MBBS, MCh, FRCS (Hon.), Professor, Department of Urology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Man Cave Health Founder and Chairman, Thomas Milana, Jr. said, “The time has come to make men’s health a priority, and Man Cave Health is proud to lead the charge in shining a spotlight on the people who are doing just that.”
