Congratulations RSPH awards winners

31/10/16 . Partners

The Forum was well-represented at the Royal Society of Public Health Awards last week.

The landmark event, which celebrates outstanding contributions to championing the public’s health, was hosted by Men's Health Forum associate Graham Rushbrook. Graham and his fantastic jacket, a contribution to health and wellbeing in itself, was joined by co-hosts Angela Rippon and Lord Kamlesh Patel, a member and former chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Men's Health.

All the award winners deserve congratulations for their dedicated and often life-changing efforts but a special shout goes to Food Nation, the Men's Health Forum's partner on an innovative new men's nutrition project (watch this space), who were the Healthier Lifestyles Award winner and won the overall award, the Public Health Minister's award 2016. Well done, guys.

The event's entertainment was provided by another Men's Health Forum associate, John Ryan. John puts the ha ha ha in health and showcased some of the hard-hitting but hilarious material he includes in his set as the Men's Health Forum's comedy contractor.

The Forum's deputy CEO Tracy Herd, who was one of the award judges, represented the Forum along with trustee Su Wang and our guest Clare Fleming, the Director of Membership and Communications at IIRSM.

A great evening. Thanks RSPH – and congratulations again to all the award winners.

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
