Wellness Wednesday: Male Birth Control, Race and Breast Cancer, Premature Birth Trauma
Men have had little option for birth control beyond condoms for nearly 300 years. Recent studies have shown possible new options for men but many are wary due to side effects that mirror those of female menstruation.
Join us today as we discuss the future of male birth control, the racial disparities in breast cancer diagnoses, and the trauma involved in premature birth and how groups are working to lessen the impact.
