2011 focus groups: Men's Health
This was part of a conversation on men’s health sparked by the report "Where are the Men? Chief Medical Health Officer’s Report on the Health & Wellbeing of Men and Boys in Northern BC".
As noted in Where are the Men?, northern men don't live as long as those in BC's lower mainland. As well, men die earlier than women of virtually all causes. The 2011 men's health focus groups targeted First Nations, transportation, oil/gas/forestry/mining, and more.
