The Drive for Men’s Health (D4MH) has reached millions of people with important messages surrounding men’s health issues – from the impact of fitness and nutrition to the importance of talking with your loved ones about sexual health issues that have traditionally been perceived as taboo. Beyond awareness, the D4MH raises funds in support of the latest research and development of best practices in urology care. Each year, the D4MH donates tens of thousands of dollars to help underwrite research, educational, and awareness-generating efforts in the fight to improve men’s health.

Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt and Dr. Sijo Parekattil, Co-Directors of The PUR Clinic (Personalized Urology & Robotics, Clermont ) are embarking on a trip across the globe in the Drive for Men’s Health™. They will stop along the way to take part in activities to raise awareness for men’s health.

The purpose of the Drive for Men’s Health™ marathon is to increase awareness of men’s health issues and to encourage men to make their health a priority. Throughout the world, men are encouraged to be more active, eat healthier, get better sleep, quit smoking, and decrease stress. As urologists, Dr. Brahmbhatt and Dr. Parekattil also drive awareness surrounding chronic groin and testicular pain, post-vasectomy pain, post-inguinal hernia pain and male infertility.

Dr. Sijo Parekattil attended the South Lake Chamber of Commerce Business Breakfast on January 18 at the Clermont City Center to announce that he and Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt are getting ready to fly for men’s health.

During the 2019 Drive for Men’s Health, January 18 to February 3, the two doctors are reaching out to a whole new subset of men, those who live in regions where they are less likely to hear the message of why it’s important to be proactive about their own health.  Doctors Brahmbhatt and Parekattil, both of Indian descent, are going back to their roots to explain to men in India and Dubai how simple, daily changes in their routines can add years to their lives.

The Doctors kicked off the drive at Clermont parkrun on Saturday, January 19 and visit:

  • Ahmedabad, India – January 26
  • Delhi, India – January 28
  • Kerala, India – January 30
  • Dubai, UAE – February 2
