    You may have been hearing comments over the past few weeks about men growing moustaches to raise awareness about men’s health. It’s a big, important topic this month, especially throughout the Blues radio network, which reaches across the state.

    Weighing in on the topic this month are Andy Hetzel, the Blues’ VP of Corporate Communications; Jeff Connolly, president of West Michigan Operations and Managed Care; and Ken Dallafior, executive vice president of Group Business and Corporate Marketing. They’ll cover a wide array of topics, from specialty dental and vision products to the Blues’ Health Plan Advisors, but November is Movember at the Blues, after all.

    Sports networks

    You will hear Dallafior and color commentator Jim Brandstatter talking Movember all month long during University of Michigan football games. Also, Grace Derocha, Registered Dietitian for the Blues, discusses men’s health and Movember with Doug Karsch during the live U-M Tailgate Show on WXYT-FM 97.1 The Ticket.

    Dallafior will also talk Movember with Brandstatter during Detroit Lions games and on the Thanksgiving Day game. Stay tuned!

    The Healthier Michigan Radio Show

    • Dr. Michael Lutz of the Michigan Institute of Urology Men’s Health Foundation discusses how men can help prevent the risk of prostate cancer and other diseases.
    • Dallafior talks about the ways men can get healthy and stay healthy.
    • Dr. Scott Eathorne from St. John Providence Health System points out which chronic conditions are more prevalent among men and what men can do to combat these conditions.
