Discussion sessions

The ethos of Men's Health @ York is that there are a core set of sessions, open to all who are interested in men's health, which will focus on different topics. Typically these will last for about 90 minutes (including discussion time) and take place every couple of months. Each session will consist of a subject talk followed by facilitated group discussion on the session topic.

A key part of these meetings will be the chance to meet other members of Common interest groups; with these small communities at each session, we'll ensure a warm welcome to new and continuing attendees.

Below are the dates and topics for the next 12 months. All sessions will be held on the University campus - details of the venue will be confirmed ahead of each event. We'll add a link to the slides after each event.
