Magna Canada Movember Team member Julia Kimmerer works as a Health Promotion Coordinator for Magna International. She travels to Magna divisions across the greater Toronto area educating and promoting health.
This Movember Julia decided to challenge herself for a good cause by moving 60km during the month. Julia knows that “men’s health isn't just an issue for men to solve, women can also step in to help. The issues that Movember support are personal to me, as I have many important men in my life, and I am happy to spread awareness and information about these health issues that can affect them”.
Movember Fact: The Movember foundation is changing the face of men’s health by focusing on three major health issues: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health/suicide prevention. On average, men are dying 6 years earlier than women from many preventable causes. The Movember foundation is trying to close this gap by giving men the facts, altering behavior for the better, creating and changing services that work for men, uniting the brightest minds, and listening to the community and advocating for men.
Thank you Magna Mo Sista Julia for joining the Magna Canada Movember team and moving to make a difference in men’s health!
