What is Movember? You hear the word all the time. But what does it mean? Simply put, Movember is an annual event dedicated to the growing of moustaches to bring awareness to men’s health issues. Movember, which occurs in November, comes after Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. Both raise awareness of gender-specific health issues. Movember brings attention to prostate and other male-specific cancers, depression in men and other men’s health issues. Movember is run by the Movember Foundation, with the goal of changing the face of men’s health. Grow your Movember moustache with the help of these Baltimore-area barber shops.
