Griffin to host annual mustache contest

November 11, 2018

Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men is hosting its annual “Show Your ’MO!” Contest this November to support men’s health awareness.

Everyone is invited to submit a picture of their “MO” (aka mustache or facial hair) for a chance to win great prizes. Real or fake, all “MOs” are welcome. Email a photo to him@griffinhealth.org by Nov. 30 to be entered into a contest for three prize baskets.

“In the U.S, men die five years earlier than women on average, and for largely preventable reasons,” said Griffin Hospital Chief Medical Officer Dr. Frederick Browne, in a news release. “According to statistics, 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, testicular cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in young men, and 3 out of 4 suicides are committed by men. These statistics show just how much the men’s health crisis needs our attention.”
