Davidson, MD, the Clinic has grown from a small storefront operation into the largest community health center on the Westside of Los Angeles County, with 12 sites in Venice, Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Inglewood, and Culver City, serving 26,000 men, women, and children annually. Venice Family Clinic provides screenings and health education for prostate, colon, lung and skin cancer. For more information, visit www.venicefamilyclinic.org.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health. These funds deliver breakthrough research and support services to allow men to live longer, healthier, happier lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising more than $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs through impact investments, focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
The Foundation runs awareness and fundraising activities year-round, with the annual Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun and innovative approach to raising money and getting men to take action for their health. During Movember, we challenge men to grow a moustache or to make a commitment to get active and MOVE, both of which are about real action for health and are done to spark conversation and raise vital funds and awareness.
