Our objective is to provide students with keynote speakers who possess real stories and unique perspectives on the various issues concerning young men’s health. Each keynote speaker has a perspective, which has been drawn from first hand experiences. Following each speaker, small group sessions will be used to reinforce key principles, stimulate discussion between students and provide students with the practical tools to deal with these issues.
