Advances in detection, treatment and research of diseases affecting men's health will be discussed Nov. 11 at a one-day symposium sponsored by Johns Hopkins. The conference, at the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, begins at 8:15 a.m. and concludes at 4:30 p.m.
"Gender-based differences in diseases are becoming more recognized as health issues," says Adrian Dobs, M.D., deputy director of clinical research. "Although much attention has been focused on women's health issues such as hormone replacement therapy, progress in detection and treatment of prostate diseases and new approaches for testosterone replacement therapy highlight the need to discuss men's health care."
Specialists from the Hopkins departments of medicine and urology, the University of Maryland Medical Center and the Bowman-Gray School of Medicine will discuss numerous issues facing men, including sexual problems, emotional health, cardiovascular disease, prostate disease, sleep disorders, hormone replacement therapy and changes in fertility.
