About Health Alerts…
Men who have sex with men (MSM) often face dangerous and widespread health issues, many of which are ignored by the local media. As a response, the Pitt Men’s Study and the HIV Prevention and Care Project provide free Health Alert bulletins to the community via an email list service.
Health Alerts are backed by 25 years of experience (through the Pitt Men’s Study medical staff) in working with a diverse group of MSM. Individuals interested in subscribing to the service can send an email to m4mInformation@pitt.edu with the word subscribe in the subject line. You will then receive a confirmation message to verify your email address. Members can unsubscribe at any time, and email addresses will be kept private and confidential.
You can also follow us on Facebook, to receive Health alerts and other sexual health information for men who have sex with men.
