The Lodge – Movember edition (prostate cancer, testicular cancer and cardiovascular diseases)

The Lodge is a place where we can gather together and share our experiences of fatherhood. The Lodge are monthly online peer support sessions for dads. The sessions are an informal get together, on zoom. They are super chilled and a chance to meet and talk to other new and like minded dads.

The sessions are a safe space so we ask all attendees to treat each other with respect, empathy and confidentiality. Our facilitators are experienced and trained and we have safeguarding procedures in place. All this helps to ensure the sessions are productive and enjoyable for everyone.

At the Movember event we will be covering physical health – particularly prostate cancer, testicular cancer and cardiovascular diseases. We will be looking at the statistics, when we should be getting checked and how we can check our health ourselves. We will also look at some of the barriers to men seeking professional help.

The Lodge is a free event, register here.

We will be joined by Helen Lake who is a specialist urology nurse (urology is a part of health care that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra). Helen is also the Director of men’s health at Peppy.
