On Thursday 15th June, Digital health app Peppy is hosting a first-of-its-kind, free online summit that aims to break down common taboos in men’s health, and reveal the crucial role employers have to play in improving health outcomes for male employees.
With research highlighting 1 in 5 men won’t make it to retirement age, men’s health is in crisis. While the blame for this is often put on men themselves, Peppy believes that’s only half the problem.
Dr Mridula Pore, Peppy Co-Founder & Co-CEO commented:
It’s time to open up the conversation on men’s health, rethink how we deliver healthcare for men and meet them where they are. This is why employers have such a vital role to play by providing access to healthcare at or via the workplace.
Dr Mridula Pore, Peppy Co-Founder & Co-CEO
Together with leading experts, HR teams who’ve already tackled some of these issues and men with real, personal stories to tell, attendees to ‘Unzipped 2023: Men’s Health Exposed’ will learn about the true impact men’s health issues are having at work, and come away equipped with the tools and confidence needed to drive change.
Peppy will be hosting Olympic Gold Medallist and passionate advocate for men’s health, Sir Steve Redgrave. During his chat with Peppy Co-Founder Dr Mridula Pore, Sir Steve will discuss his own health experiences and views on the relationship between careers and neglecting one’s health. Ahead of Unzipped, Sir Steve Redgrave comments:
There is an ongoing stigma and taboo around the topic of health among men which we urgently need to remove. I speak from experience when I say I understand how hard it can be to confront your own health, especially when you’re busy with work, but we can and must do better. I’m delighted to be joining Peppy for this first edition of Unzipped.
Sir Steve Redgrave
During Unzipped, expert panellists and hosts will lead discussions and Q&As on a range of topics related to men’s health, including the following topics below:
- Low testosterone
- Prostate health
- Erectile dysfunction
- Cardiovascular health
- Urological conditions
By addressing the taboos and challenges surrounding male health in the workplace, this event aims to create an open dialogue and raise awareness about the mental well-being of male employees. Recognising the societal pressures and expectations placed on men to be stoic and strong, the event seeks to destigmatise seeking help and encourage employers to play a vital role in providing access to mental health resources.
