About MIU Men's Health Foundation

What does the MIU Men's Health Foundation do? Take a look at just a few of our program and services to learn more!

  • In 2019, The Men’s Health Event at Ford Field provided over 14,000 FREE life-saving screenings to over 1100 attendees identifying skin cancer, prostate cancer, oral cancer, abnormal EKGs and more! Men are given proper follow up care to treat these early abnormal findings.  This event will be needed in 2020 more than ever with men not getting their routine check-ups. Did you know it's predicted that 22,600 diagnoses of prostate cancer will be either missed or delayed this year because of Covid-19?  Looking forward to the return of this event at Ford Field in the September or October 2021 (date to be announced soon!)
  • The Blue Fund, providing limited short-term financial assistance to prostate cancer patients during their active treatment, has given out 81 grants totaling over $57,000 of financial support since 2016!
  • The Prostate Cancer Survivorship Series continues to impact prostate cancer survivors and their families as they turn in to our virtual events on Facebook. "An Evening with Mitch" is scheduled for June 3rd. Tune into @MIUMensHealth on Facebook at 6:00pm to hear his survivorship story. 

What else do we have planned for Men's Health Week this June? Join us at our other signature events!

  • Cogs and Kegs e will take place Monday,June 14, 2021 at Griffin Claw Brewery. Each $20 donation and 20 miles you ride will get a man screened at this fall's Men's Health Event! 
  • Blue Monday falls on Monday, June 14, 2021. We won't be able to meet at Campus Martius, but we can still wear blue, do something healthful and post it on social media to increase awareness of the men's health movement in Detroit and beyond!
