Maryland Commission for Men's Health
Legislation establishing a Maryland Commission on Men's Health was signed into law on May 16th, by Governor Ehrlich. The bill creates a full commission to study and aid in providing preventative care to males.
From the press release:
This unprecedented measure taken by the Maryland General Assembly and Governor Ehrlich will solidify Maryland as a leader in men's health and help to better the lives of men and their loved ones within the state of Maryland." The director of public policy for Men's Health Network (MHN), Joseph Arite commented, "it is our hope that other states will follow suit in establishing such a vital commission." MHN is ready and willing to offer support to the committee as it does in other states across the country.
Greenbelt, Md. Urologist Dr. Myron Murdock concluded, "The Maryland Men's Health Commission will ensure that the male population is better represented in the health care arena. This will lead to a greater awareness of men's health needs among the public and among policy makers."
