Scientific Spotlight


Greetings from the ISMH! This marks the first installment of our new monthly Editor's Column, whereby I will be providing commentary and updating the world on the latest developments in men's health in both the clinical and research arenas.

Our collective goal at the ISMH is to be the leaders in delivering the highest quality groundbreaking information on all aspects of men's health.  In the coming months, you will notice several important changes to the website as we expand our links under the Scientific Spotlight section to provide you with more information portals to all aspects of men's health.

We also aim for this website to expand opportunities for networking and collaboration in the field of men's health.  While men's health is commonly thought of as limited to urology, our colleagues encompass all fields of medicine from primary to specialty care, research, nursing, public health, and public advocacy.

We greatly thank you for your interest in men's health and look forward to learning about your common interests and contributions to all aspects of the field.  Join us in sharing your thoughts and passion for advancing men's health to allow for us to understand how to address and reduce disparities in men's health worldwide.
