STAMFORD, Conn., Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Rooted in its
purpose to improve people's health and well-being through
meaningful innovation, Philips – a global leader in health
technology – is partnering with Movember, the leading charity
changing the face of men's health. This November, Philips Norelco
is raising its voice by asking men to put their razors down and let
their "Mos" grow.
According to research from Movember, men die an average of six
years earlier than women in the U.S. For this reason, every
November, Movember encourages men around the world to come together
to grow moustaches, raise funds and spread awareness for men's
"Men's health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer, as
well as suicide, have immense personal and public health impacts,"
said Dr. Jake Taylor, MD MPH, Chief
Resident in Urology at New York
University Langone Health and Philips Norelco partner.
"That's why it's so important that men educate themselves on
warning signs and continue to engage in open and honest
conversations when it comes to their health. This should be a
priority, rather than an afterthought."
With a shared vision to create a widespread and long-lasting
impact, Philips Norelco and Movember are motivating men to stay
healthy in all areas of life by tackling the health issues that are
right under their noses – emphasizing social connection, having an
open dialogue about physical and mental health, and normalizing
mental health support.
To do so, Philips Norelco is committing a donation up to
$550,000, which includes more than
850 Philips Norelco shavers and funds to help Movember develop
innovative men's health research and provide year-round support
programs for men.
"Philips Norelco aspires for men to look and feel their best
which means more than just grooming," said Brett
Bardsley, Philips Norelco Marketing Director. "The brand's
mission to improve the lives of men through purpose-oriented
product development and meaningful innovation aligns perfectly with
Movember's mission to change the face of men's health and empower
men to live happier, healthier and longer lives."
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men's health
projects around the world, shaking up men's health research and
transforming the way health services reach and support men.
"We are committed to helping men live longer lives and reducing
the number of men dying prematurely by 25 percent by the year
2030," said Mark Hedstrom, US
Executive Director of Movember. "Partners like Philips Norelco are
critical in not only funding, but also raising visibility for our
common cause among their consumers online and in the retail
