I have been working in the field of men's
health since my son, Jemal, was born in 1965. When I held
him for the first time I made a vow that I would be a different
kind of father than my father was able to be for me. I also
wanted to help create a different kind of world where men
could have great relationships with their children, spouses,
co-workers, friends, and community.
I am the Founder/Director of the MenAlive,
a health program that helps men live long and well. Since
its inception in 1992, I have been on the Board of Advisors
of the Men's Health Network. I am also a member of the International
Society for the Study of the Aging Male and serve as a member
of the International Scientific Board of the World Congress
on Men's Health.
I have taught classes at U.C. Berkeley,
U.C.L.A., J.F.K. University, Esalen Institute, The Omega Institute,
and other centers of education throughout the U.S., Canada,
and Europe. I have also consulted with major corporations
throughout the world to help them develop and market products
