Message from Dr. Robert Primavesi, Associate Dean Undergraduate Medical Education and Adam Parent (Class 2015), McGill Medical Students’ Society (MSS)

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world.  With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.

McGill Medicine students have started a Movember group to unite all four years of the medical class in an effort to raise funds for Prostate Cancer research.  We ask you to consider participating this year.  You don’t have to grow a moustache to join; everyone may be included and can contribute.

As more people become Citizens of Movember, the more lives will be impacted.  You can grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team.   If you would like to find out more about the programs funded by Movember, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website:
