Youngstown Men in Nursing Participate in Mahoning Valley's Movember Prostate Cancer Awareness
On November 2, Youngstown location participating students attended the Movember Kickoff event clean shaven ready to "grow a 'stache, start a conversation, and save a life." Students will continue to participate in month long awareness activities to show their support and promote education for men in the Mahoning Valley to “Man Up and Get an Exam” to end the area's most prevalent cancer.
Activities included volunteering at ManUp Night at the November 6 Phantom's hockey game handing out pamphlets and arm bands as well as selling 50/50 raffle tickets. All proceeds went to the campaign to fund 35 prostate screenings for those who cannot afford screenings.
At the end of the campaign students will join other men in the community for the “Shave Off” which includes a televised traditional straight razor barber’s shave. “Even the girls are in!” showing their support participating in events and handing out information.
