The expert panel will be facilitated around the topic of how Men can make healthier decisions and the dire consequences of not making better decisions. The panel will be moderated by our very own Dr. Micah Griffin, PhD, MS, MHA, Director of Health Programs. Panelist will be Gerald Maitre, LMSW Director CUNY EDGE, Louisdon Pierre, MD, MBA, FCCM Chief Pediatric Care Director, Inpatient Services The Brooklyn Hospital Center & President and Co founder of Pediatric Universal Life-Saving Effort and Matthew Lambert, LMT ,CPT Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Massage Therapist.

a keynote address- Surthrival Mode (Sur-thrive-al) from 1:50 p.m. - 2:50 p.m. in the Hall of Flags. Our speaker Pervis Taylor, III, M.A., is an award-winning celebrity life coach, speaker and author of Surthrival Mode. As a result of his own trauma, Pervis has dedicated his life to the betterment of one's mental and emotional growth. For the keynote he will share his experience and philosophy with us.

Please see the attached flyer to share with students and anyone else you think may be interested in attending. All students, faculty and staff are welcome, although Movember focuses on Men’s Health issues, women play a crucial role in getting men to take better care of themselves and will benefit greatly from participating.
